Meeting Rooms

We offer free meeting rooms for community groups and educational programs.
Please note that all activities must be non-profit, open to the general public, and free of charge.
Meeting rooms may not be used to raise money, engage in activity for which a person receives payment, solicit customers, sign applications for service, advertise a business or collect fees for tuition.

Meeting Room Request

When not needed for Library use, the meeting rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis for meetings that are educational, cultural, political, civic, or charitable.
The Library reserves the right to reschedule or cancel meeting room reservations by members of the public, if the occasion arises, in order to accommodate library programming or other needs.

  • All meetings must be open to the public without charge. Meetings may not disturb the normal operations of the Library nor pose a safety hazard.
  • The sale, advertising, solicitation or promotion of products or services is not allowed in the Library’s meeting rooms.
  • Except for Library-sponsored or co-sponsored events, booking organizations or individuals may not charge admission fees, fundraise or collect donations before, during or after meetings. Off-site admission fees or pre-payment to attend a meeting are not allowed. It is understood that legitimate dues and membership fees do not constitute admission fees.
  • Presentations that are primarily commercial in nature, rather than educational, are not permitted. Individuals who wish to be featured at a Library program should contact Library staff.
  • The Library may not accept reservations for a series of meetings which would designate the Library as the regular meeting place for any organization.
  • Meeting rooms may not be used for private social gatherings or parties.
  • Alcoholic beverages, smoking, using e-cigarettes or the use of smokeless tobacco is not permitted.
  • Programs may not disrupt the use of the Library by others. Persons attending the meetings are subject to all library rules and regulations.
  • The number of people attending any meeting must not exceed the posted limit as set forth by the fire marshal.

Group responsibility and liability

  • Groups are responsible for arranging the room as needed for their meeting, clearing, and returning the room to its original arrangement at meeting’s end. If refreshments are served, due care and consideration must be given to the library carpet, floors, and other furnishings and equipment.
  • At the conclusion of a meeting, the room must be returned to its original condition. Any group that abuses the meeting room privilege shall lose the right to use the meeting room.
  • Groups or individuals using a meeting room are responsible for all damages to any property of the Library resulting directly or indirectly from the conduct of any member, officer, employee, agent or guest of the group.
  • All meeting room users agree to hold harmless the East Bonner County Library District from and against any and all liability which may be imposed upon them or either of them for any injury to persons or property caused by the organization or any person connected with the meeting.
  • The East Bonner County Library District assumes no responsibility for any property placed in the Library in connection with a meeting; and the East Bonner County Library District is hereby expressly released and discharged from any and all liability for any loss, injury, or damage to persons or property which may be sustained by reason of use of a meeting room.
