Meeting Room Policy and Procedures


The Cambridge Public Library offers meeting and program spaces for groups of varying sizes to serve an educational, cultural, or civic purpose. Rooms are available subject to the policies and procedures outlined below and in accordance with the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights. Rooms are only available for Cambridge based not-for-profit community groups.

Library sponsored programs have priority over all outside groups. The Library reserves the right to re-schedule confirmed reservations to accommodate library-sponsored programs and events. To minimize this possibility the Library takes bookings no more than two months in advance. 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, its staff, its Board of Trustees, or the City of Cambridge.
