How do I reserve a meeting room?

The meeting rooms in all the libraries of the Athens Regional Library System are designed to advance the ideas expressed in their mission statements, i.e., that they should serve as a community resource by providing access to library and other programs for educational, informational, cultural and civic functions of the communities in our region. These meeting rooms are available on equal terms to all groups in the community regardless of beliefs, or affiliations of their members, provided that the meetings are free and open to the public.

Reservations for use may be made by completing a reservation form at your local library. Click here for more detailed information on Meeting Room policy.
