Meetings & Events

Jefferson County is happy to offer space for nonprofit, government, civic and public organizations. Access to public meeting rooms is part of a patron's First Amendment rights to assembly and expression. Use of a meeting room, event or display space does not imply endorsement or support on the part of the library, library staff, or Jefferson County.

Meeting rooms

Meeting rooms are limited use public forums, subject to the following rules:

  • Meetings must be nonprofit, noncommercial, free and open to the public.
  • Participants must follow conduct policies.
  • Event setup/cleanup, funding, staffing, security, press and promotion are the responsibility of the event organizer/s.
  • At least one adult (18+) must be present for the duration of the event.
  • An event organizer must provide a working contact number in case of scheduling issues.
  • Meetings are subject to availability, capacity and safety limits. Rooms are provided on a first come, first served basis. 
  • Meetings must be held during regular library hours.


The library provides space for tabling events (e.g. petitions and surveys, literature distribution, etc.) under the following rules:

  • Events must not interrupt patrons' normal activities. Patrons should approach the event if interested.
  • Organizers should not imply that the library has sponsored their activity or that participation is a requirement of library use. Tables cannot block entrances, exits or hallways, or impede people's use of the library.
  • Tabling cannot be for a for-profit or commercial venture.
  • The library is a small venue and space for tabling and events is limited. The library does not have permanent tabling space. Tabling events are expected to be one-time or, at most, monthly events. 

Community bulletin board

The community bulletin board is available for people to post flyers. Flyers will be removed in 1 month or if the date of an event has passed.


People may not approach patrons or staff for participation in surveys, donations, campaigning, literature distribution, or other activities that interrupt someone's use of the library. Instead, they should set up a tabling event and wait for interested patron/s to approach.
