The Community Room of the Carl Elliott Regional Library System is available for public use to groups or organizations of a civic, cultural, or educational character, but it cannot be used for social or religious gatherings, money raising, or commercial purposes.
Programs held in the library must be directed to general public participation, and admission must be free to all who wish to attend. No money may be collected from the audience, nor any sales made in connection with the meeting.
Library sponsored activities are given priority in scheduling use of the Community Room at all times.
Application in person, by telephone, or letter for use of the Community Room may be made at the Regional Headquarters Office in the Carl Elliott Regional Library System Building. The room will be assigned in order in which requests are received. Scheduled meetings must be held within the library's hours of operation. No meetings, except library-sponsored programs, may be scheduled outside the library's hours of operation.
Granting of permission to use the Community Room does not constitute an endorsement by the library staff, or the Library Board of Trustees, of the users or their beliefs. The library reserves the right to revoke meeting room privileges at any time.
Each organization is limited to scheduling one meeting per month. Programs may not disrupt the use of the library by other patrons. Persons attending meetings are subject to all library rules and regulations.
Refreshments may not be brought into the library building without approval. Alcoholic beverages of any type may not be brought into or served in the building or on library property. Smoking is not permitted.
It is the responsibility of the group reserving the Community Room to set up the room and to return all furnishings to their original positions. The Community Room must be clean of all litter when meetings close and any display material must be installed and removed by the user. Organizations holding meetings assume responsibility for any damage to the room, contents, or equipment. Storage facilities will not be provided to any organization.
Organizations may not use the library address as their mailing address. Organizations may not state or imply that the library is sponsoring the program.
The Carl Elliott Regional Library System accepts no liability or responsibility for any damage to person or property arising from the use of the Community Room.
This statement of policy is subject to amendment or revision, at any time, by the Board of Trustees of the Carl Elliott Regional Library System.
