  • The organization conducting the meeting is not doing so for the immediate or ultimate gain of a for-profit business or agency.
  • The meeting takes place during regular library hours.
  • The meeting cannot be expected to disrupt the ability of the library to conduct its business in a normal and orderly manner.
  • The meeting is open to the public.
  • The reservation for the meeting area is made by a resident of the library’s jurisdictional area, pending Director’s approval.
  • The organization assumes all responsibility for set-up and clean-up.
