Meeting Rooms

All NOLS locations offer community meeting rooms for public use.

All meeting room reservations have been cancelled through 2020. No new meeting room reservations are being accepted at this time.

NOLS understands that its meeting rooms are extremely popular and useful to a wide array of community groups, but at this time, meeting rooms are being used to store equipment and materials for curbside library service. As libraries are able to re-open to the public in Phase 3, meeting room space will likely be needed for other library services in order to follow social distancing guidelines.

The Library will continue to monitor the situation closely, and will inform meeting room users if there are any changes in meeting room availability. When we are able to reopen library meeting rooms for public reservations again, individuals who made reservations in 2020 will be contacted about the process for rescheduling cancelled reservations and placing new ones.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
