Meeting Room Policy – Main Library

Petoskey District Library – Adopted February 22, 2005, Revised September 2009, July 24, 2014

The Library meeting rooms exist for use by community organizations that serve the greater Petoskey community, for the library and its programs, and for other meetings that are open to the public. They may be used by for-profit organizations for a fee.

Use of the library meeting rooms by a group does not in any way constitute an endorsement of that group’s policies by the library staff, The Library Board.

Final determination for use of the meeting rooms is at the discretion of the Library Director.

Main Library Meeting Room Guidelines:
The Library has first priority for meeting room usage and is exempt from any restrictions.
No meeting may be held for which a fee is charged to the attendees or for a money-making venture.
Meeting rooms are only available during the Library’s open hours.

  • Non-profit organizations can use the meeting rooms at no charge.
  • For–profit concerns will pay the Library a fee of $50.00 for any time the meeting space is used. This fee is established by the Library Board.
  • Rooms not reserved are available to walk-in individuals and groups as space permits. As stated above, for-profit walk-ins will be charged the $50.00 fee . Exceptions granted by the Director or his/her designee.

Room users are responsible for the condition of the room, including equipment and furnishings, following the meeting. Users must clean the room, put away the furniture and discard all trash.

The Community Labyrinth is open to users year-round. It may be used by for-profit organizations for $25 at the discretion of the staff. Sound levels during Labyrinth usage must be such that they cannot be heard in the Library.

The Library reserves the right to restrict use by those who do not abide by these conditions.
