Connecting you with literature, information, and the world

Using the Library's Public Spaces:

The library has an auditorium for large gatherings, the Wilson Room and the Carnegie Room for individual work or gatherings of a few people, and an outdoor amphitheater that are available for use by the public.

Private social gatherings may be reserved on a first come, first served basis during library hours of operation.  These events will be charged a $25 deposit, returned once the room is cleaned and checked over.  They must be reserved by someone over the age of 18.

Gatherings of community organizations will not be charged a deposit and may be scheduled outside of library hours at the discretion of the staff.

No event may be held for commercial purposes on library property.

To reserve any of the library's Public Spaces, including the auditorium, you can click the button below, call 712-246-2315, or e-mail
