Code of Conduct
Facility Use for Political Purposes
To provide guidelines for the use of library meeting and conference rooms by
the public when they are not being used by the District, Friends of the Library
groups or government agencies using the room for government purposes.
Spokane County Library District uses its meeting rooms to offer educational, cultural,
civic and community-oriented programs. The District may also co-sponsor programs or
exhibits with other agencies, organizations, institutions or individuals, including
those that require a fee for attendance for cost recovery purposes.
The District will allow use of meeting and conference rooms by any other group or
individual, subject to these restrictions:
All activities must be open to the public and may not be restricted to any particular
group. The District may elect to provide notification to the general public about meetings or activities.
To ensure equal access, groups are limited to one (1) reservation per month per library.
Reservations may be booked up to two (2) months in advance of the current month; the
Branch Supervisor may make an exception to allow more frequent use of the meeting
room based upon availability.
While the District does not require a fee for use of its meeting and conference rooms, a
$25.00 minimum cleaning/maintenance fee will be charged if the room is left in unsatisfactory condition.
Permission to use these facilities will not be denied to any group or individual because of
race, religion, color, sex, national origin, marital status, familial status, age, sexual orientation, political affiliation or disability.
Permission to use District meeting rooms does not constitute or imply endorsement or
sponsorship by the District and meeting room users are expected to fully comply with all
applicable provisions of law.
The District may keep registration and reservation information on file for operational purposes.
The District does not assume liability for injuries to individuals or damages to personal or
District property that occur as a result of actions of the sponsors or participants in activities
in its meeting rooms.
The District reserves the right to limit use of the rooms if use would result in interference
with proper functioning of the library. This includes, but is not limited to creating a situation
that limits District activities or public access to the library or its services.
The Executive Director is responsible for establishing and administering procedures to carry out this policy.
The District will make a good faith effort to implement this policy in a fair and consistent manner.
