Athens-Clarke County Library - Public Meeting Rooms Policy

The public meeting rooms (multi-purpose room, auditorium, conference rooms, study rooms, classrooms &/or other designated areas) of the Athens-Clarke County Library are designed to advance the ideas & purposes expressed in the library's mission statement & strategic plan. The facilities should serve as a public resource by providing access to library & other programs for educational, informational, cultural & civic functions of the community.
