When Charles Eckhart offered a library to the city of Auburn, he stated that he wanted a room which would be available, free of charge to the public. In keeping with these wishes and recognizing the need to provide this service to the community, the Eckhart Public Library Board of Trustees offers several meeting rooms in library buildings.
|Main||Alice Willennar Close Community Room||50|
|Main||Honaker-Graber Study Room||6|
|Main||Board Meeting Room||8|
|William H. Willennar Genealogy Center||Learning Lab||30|
|William H. Willennar Genealogy Center||Foundation Room||12|
|Third Place Teen Library||Lower Level||75|
These rooms, equipped with free WiFi access, are available at no charge for non-profit groups who wish to hold meetings or present programs of civic, educational, or cultural purposes. Events of a personal nature such as birthday or anniversary parties, reunions, showers, etc. are not allowed.
Priority is given to library-sponsored and co-sponsored activities. Availability for others is determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations may be made in person, online, or by telephone during regular library hours and anytime during the year. The Eckhart Public Library supports recurring meetings for local groups.
|Teen Academic Year||4p-9p||4p-9p||4p-9p||4p-9p||4p-9p||12p-5p||Closed|
Organizations or individuals using meeting rooms shall indemnify and hold harmless the Eckhart Public Library and its officers, director, agents and employees from and against all losses, damages, claims, costs and expenses arising from injury or death of any person(s), or damage to property resulting from any act or omission of such users of their employees, agents, representatives, guests, invitees, or the general public to the extent that such losses, damages, claims, costs and expenses arise in connection with or relate to the organization’s or individual’s use of the facility.
The fact that a group is permitted to meet at the library does not constitute an endorsement of its policies or beliefs.
The Library Director is authorized to deny permission to use the library rooms to any group that violates these regulations or users who misrepresent an event or affiliation to avoid compliance. Any question of interpretation will be decided by the Eckhart Public Library Board of Trustees.
