Hollytex Community Room Scheduling
When planning your meeting or activity, scheduling needs to allow time for cleaning and vacating the premises. The meeting room is not available after 9:00 P.M. Library programs and related activities are given priority, should scheduling conflicts arise. No library program will be planned for a reserved time after a reservation has been confirmed by the staff.
The library will not accept reservations for a series of meetings which would designate the library as their regular meeting place for an organization, except groups specifically sponsored or organized by the library. The Library will not accept reservations for Religious, Political, or Social Groups. Groups may reserve the library meeting rooms for one meeting at a time for up to six months in advance. Multiple meetings may be scheduled only at the discretion of the Library Director.
Requests for the use of the facilities should be made with the staff, Monday through Saturday during regular library hours.
No one under twenty-one (21) years of age may reserve the room.
Hollytex Community Room Use
Activities for minors must be sponsored by at least one person over 21 years of age. The use of the facilities by an organization does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of that organization’s policies or beliefs. Smoking, the use of tobacco, or the use of alcoholic beverages is not allowed anywhere in the library or in its meeting rooms.
Sponsoring groups are responsible for setting up the Room to meet their needs and are responsible for ensuring reasonable order by group members or others attending the meeting. Simple decorations may be set up in the room for a meeting or exhibit, but no decorations may be hung which will mar the walls, floors or ceilings. Any decoration or exhibits must be removed by the group using them. Activities involving more than normal wear and tear on the community room or contents should be avoided.
The library reserves the right, for adequate reasons, to revoke permission to use the meeting room.
Groups are responsible for exercising reasonable care in the use of refreshments, the care of the facility, and the disposal of food and refuse. Any lost or damaged furniture or equipment becomes the responsibility of the sponsoring group. Groups are responsible for maintaining the room in a clean and orderly manner and for returning tables and chairs to their original arrangements.
