Pierce County Library System meeting rooms and conference rooms are provided free of charge as a public service for groups to gather for the purposes of learning, enjoyment, and community when not in use for Library-affiliated or sponsored activities.
To establish the policies and procedures for the use of Library meeting rooms by the public.
Designated Library staff members have the authority to approve, renew, or reject requests for public use of library spaces. The following criteria determine the use of meeting and conference rooms:
Persons wishing to reserve a meeting or conference room should go to www.piercecountylibrary.org to make an online reservation or contact the specific Library where the room they wish to use is located.
Failure to arrive for a scheduled room within thirty minutes of the reservation will be considered a no-show. If a scheduled meeting is canceled, the user must cancel the reservation online or call the Library at least 48 hours before the meeting or event. Failure to notify the Library within the requested time on two (2) or more occasions will result in loss of future meeting room privileges.
The Library reserves the right to cancel when unforeseen circumstance such as power outages, weather conditions, or conflicts with Library-affiliated or sponsored events occur.
Permission will be revoked for individuals who fail to follow these policies and procedures.
Public use of the Library’s Meeting and Conference rooms does not imply Library approval or endorsement of the group, the meeting, or the ideas presented at the meeting. Publicity for a meeting held at the Library must not be worded in a manner that would imply Library sponsorship or endorsement of a group, the meeting, or the ideas presented at the meeting.
An organization using a meeting room at Pierce County Library may not use the name and address of the Library as its headquarters or as the official address of the organization.
