The Library has a soundproof conference room on the main floor and two small study rooms on the lower level which are available for use by Library members. Library members may reserve these rooms for a two-hour period, subject to limitations and availability. Members are free to stay in the reserved space beyond the two-hour period if the space has not been reserved by another member.

The size of the group may not exceed the maximum occupancy of 12 for the conference room or 3 for each of the small study rooms. Due to demand, the conference room may not be reserved for groups of fewer than 3 people.

Staff may be required to enter the conference room while it is reserved in order to retreive materials from the Library’s historical archive.

These rooms are not available for rent or for profit-generating activities where participants are required to pay a fee. The room is not intended for external organizational meetings, seminars, tutoring, or for use as an office space or classroom.

How to make a reservation

Reservations may be made by contacting the Member Services desk (by phone, email, or in person). Reservations must be approved and confirmed by a Library staff member. The name(s) and Library membership number(s) of the individuals reserving the space must be provided at the time of the reservation.

Reservation requests may be made up to seven days in advance. Requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Cancellations should be received at least two days prior to the reservation date.
