Cambridge Public Library
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. These rooms are available for Cambridge-based not-for-profit community groups subject to the policies and procedures outlined below and in accordance with the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights.
All meeting rooms are subject to availability. 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.
