Public Use of Meeting Rooms
The York Public Library has three meeting rooms and two small study rooms. The Library welcomes the use of its meeting rooms by community groups for civic, educational, and cultural activities, as well as for public discussion. The study rooms are available for research and quiet study; they are not intended for fee-based private tutoring. Priority is given to library sponsored programs and activities. Consistent with the Library’s commitment to openness and inclusiveness, programs and meetings are expected to be free and open to the public.
The Wheeler Meeting Room: Located off the lobby at the entrance to the Library & seats 20 people.
The Kennebunk Room: Located on the first level of the Library & seats 30 people.
The Community Meeting Room: Located on the first level of the Library & seats 100 people, or can be divided into two meeting spaces. It shares a kitchen with the Crafts Room in the Children’s and Youth Services area.
The Community Meeting Room with video recording capabilities will be available to the Town of York on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. When possible and when requested, the meeting room will also be available to the Town of York on Tuesdays.
The individual signing the request to use a meeting room (or a designated person) will be responsible for being sure all library guidelines are followed and should retain a copy of the Meeting Room Regulations.
Applications for the use of a meeting room are available at the Library and must be completed and returned well in advance. Please designate the specific hours and dates requested. Reservations will be accepted for up to three months in advance and can be made by calling the Library Tuesday-Friday during regular open hours. When reserving a room groups should include time for set-up and clean-up.
Cancellations should be made as early as possible to allow others to use the room. Failure to notify the Library of a cancellation may jeopardize future reservations. The library reserves the right to cancel a room reservation in special circumstances.
A maximum of five meetings each six-month period is a guideline for meeting room use.
The Library and its meeting rooms are fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
