Ten of the District’s libraries have one or more meeting spaces that may be reserved by the public. Size and layout of the meeting spaces vary by library.
Library supervisors or their designees are available to answer questions and are able to approve use of the meeting spaces based solely on the District’s meeting room policy. Note that library-sponsored events have priority for room scheduling.
An email address is required for online meeting room requests. If you do not have an email address, please contact your local library by phone or in person to request a room. We respond to meeting room requests within 3 business days.

Conference rooms in Moran Prairie and Spokane Valley are available for public use outside of regular open hours. Conference rooms in Argonne, Deer Park, and North Spokane are available only during hours the library is open.
Reservation requests must be submitted at least two days before the event. Reservations are not confirmed until the request is approved.
Requests are limited to one reservation per month and may not be made more than two (2) months in advance.
In addition to reserving meeting and conference rooms during regular open days and hours, meeting rooms—and conference rooms in some facilities—may be reserved for days and hours when the library is not open, between the hours of 6am–11am.
Please note: When the library is otherwise unoccupied, the temperature settings, are 65 degrees for heating and 80 degrees for cooling. These temperatures will not be adjusted to accommodate use outside of regular open hours and days.
Also, for use outside of regular open hours and days, a key is available for the person reserving the meeting room space and must be picked up during regular business hours. The person reserving the meeting space is responsible for securing the building and returning the key.
The applicant must inform the library of the need to cancel a scheduled meeting room as quickly as possible. Repeated cancellations or failure to notify may result in loss of room privileges.
Meeting rooms are available 6am–11pm daily.
Meeting or conference room users must adhere to any posted room capacities.
Permission to use the rooms includes ordinary use of the furniture and fixtures, including chairs, tables, and kitchenette. The District does not provide kitchen equipment. Persons or groups must provide their own supplies.
Refreshments and light catered meals may be served. Meal preparation is not allowed. A deposit may be required of groups serving food and/or beverages.
No alcoholic beverages may be served or consumed on District property.
All libraries have wireless access available. Some audio-visual equipment is available for use at Moran Prairie and Spokane Valley libraries. Ask for details.
Furniture and room setup are the responsibility of the group using the room.
Users are responsible for cleaning up and restoring the room to its original condition before leaving. Food garbage must be removed unless other arrangements are approved prior to use of the room. A cleaning/maintenance fee (minimum $50) will be charged if the room is not left in satisfactory condition.
Nothing may be affixed or mounted in any way to the walls except where tackable wall surface or hanging appliances are provided.
The District assumes no liability for theft or damage to property brought onto library property or for injury which occurs as a result of actions of sponsors or participants in activities.
Meetings of groups whose members are under eighteen (18) years old must be supervised by an adult.
Persons or groups using the meeting rooms must not distribute materials, such as leaflets or pamphlets, or solicit the purchase of goods or services outside the room.
Failure to follow meeting room policies and procedures may result in loss of room privileges.
No individual or group may state or imply District endorsement or sponsorship of events in District meeting or conference rooms. To establish the fact that the District is not sponsoring the event, all publicity which uses the name of the library or District must include the statement:
“Sponsored by (name of the organization reserving the room)”
A group or organization may not use the name and address of any District library as its headquarters or in the official address of the organization.
The District reserves the right to limit the use of the rooms if use would result in interference with the proper functioning of the library. This includes, but is not limited to, creating a situation which limits District activities or customers’ access to the library or its services; examples are activities which produce excessive noise or which require use of more parking spaces than can be accommodated at that time.
The person(s) listed on the registration form will be held responsible for any expense the District incurs as a result of a group’s or individual’s use of the rooms; examples are response to false security alarms, lost keys, and special cleaning.
