Statement of Policy
Bridgeville Public Library provides meeting space for library programs and for other meetings/activities of an informational, educational, cultural, or civic nature. The library meeting rooms are available to the community consistent with the library’s mission of disseminating information to the community and encouraging free and open expression and exchange of ideas. Use of the facilities by other groups or individuals is allowed when not needed by the Library or for Library-related activities, programs, and meetings. It is not allowed when use interferes with or disrupts the programs, activities and normal operations of the Library, or causes a security risk or safety hazard to Library staff, property or patrons.
Use of a meeting room is free of charge to non-profit, civic, social, cultural, educational, and governmental organizations, as long as the meetings or programs held complement the mission of the library, are open to the public, are free of charge, and are not held with intention of generating revenue.
Meeting rooms cannot serve as a permanent or regular public meeting location for any non-Library related group. To allow all members of the community the opportunity to use a Library’s meeting room, room reservation may occur up to two weeks in advance. A group or individual who wishes to reserve the program room further in advance shall request written permission from the Library Director.
