Meeting Room Use

The Dickinson Memorial Library offers two rooms for use by community groups. The meeting rooms may be used by non-profit community groups or organizations devoted to education, cultural, civic and recreational activities. Although usage is open to all such groups, preference is given to Northfield-based organizations.

  1. Meeting room use must be approved and scheduled through the Library Director.
  2. The meeting rooms are available during regular library hours or through prior arrangements, when the Library is closed.
    • There will be no use of any part of the building other than the designated meeting area.
    • One person must be designated to accept responsibility for the Library while the group is using the building.
    • Upon leaving, all lights must be turned off, doors locked and utilities and climate control returned to normal night settings.
    • The key must be returned within one working day of the completion of the meeting
  3. All meetings must be open to the public. Private parties by invitation only are not permitted.
  4. All groups using the meeting rooms are responsible for the care and cleanup of the rooms and must agree to pay for any damage.
  5. State law prohibits smoking or use alcohol in public buildings.
  6. Use of the library's meeting rooms does not constitute an endorsement of an organization's policies or beliefs. No advertisements or announcements implying such endorsement will be permitted.
  7. There is no charge for the use of the meeting room, but donations to the Friends of the Library are always appreciated.
