Meeting Room Info
The Fall River Public Library has a large meeting room (Meeting Room) and a small conference room (Nagle Room) that are normally available for public use. Meeting rooms must be reserved ahead of time. Priorities in the use of meeting facilities are as follows:
Meetings held, sponsored, or co-sponsored by the library.
Meetings held by a city, state, or federal agency or official.
Meetings held by Fall River groups or organizations.
Meetings held by Greater Fall River groups or organizations.
Meetings held by individuals
The facilities are available to for-profit and nonprofit groups and organizations upon payment of the appropriate fee or fees. Fee is non-refundable if not cancelled with a 30-day notice. Fees are currently as follows:
Room For-Profit Groups Non-Profit Groups or Individuals
Large Meeting Room fee $50 per meeting $10 per meeting
Small Meeting Room fee $25 per meeting $5 per meeting
Meetings must be reserved in advance. Meetings should be scheduled to end at least one half-hour before the library closes, to insure that all participants will have left the library by closing time.
The fact that an organization is permitted to meet at the library does not constitute an endorsement of the organization's beliefs by the library, and any promotion or publicity must indicate such.
The library does not provide equipment (including projectors), promotion, or refreshments for outside groups. Groups may bring their own, but must clean up after the meeting. Groups may book up to one meeting per month.
The library's meeting space may not be used for selling goods or services, soliciting political contributions/signatures, religious worship or service, or for private parties.
The full library meeting room policy is available here.
