In keeping with the Library’s mission to offer a welcoming place for community interactions, HCCPL meeting rooms are available for use by community groups for informational, educational or cultural meetings and programs when not needed for library purposes.

All meetings must be held during regular library hours and all meetings must end fifteen minutes before the scheduled closing time. All users must allow for set-up and clean up in the time they have booked. The room(s) may not be accessed before or after the time requested. Meeting room users must clean and exit the room 15 minutes before the library closes.
