The Community Room is a multi-use space that houses the Library’s collection of books by Vermont authors and that frequently features exhibits by local artists. We encourage the use of the Community Room for cultural, educational, and recreational programs. The room can accommodate up to sixty people. There is no charge, but donations are welcome.
Groups or individuals utilizing the Community Room must abide by the policies enumerated in the Community Room Policy form.
Reservations may be made online, in person, or by phone. A completed application confirms the reservation. Reservations may be made up to three months in advance of the meeting. A single application may be filed by a group holding regular monthly meetings as long as all the conditions of use continue to be met.
Except for Library staff meetings, interviews, and training sessions, gatherings at the Library must be free and open to the public, therefore we reserve the right to make the name and telephone number provided on the request form available to anyone inquiring about the scheduled meeting.
