LIBRARIES & SURROUNDING GROUNDS USE GUIDELINES

The Brown County Library is a not-for-profit, tax supported institution. The library spaces are designed primarily for use in library-related activities. When they are not needed for programs sponsored by the library, they will be available for use by other groups on a first come, first served basis, subject to policies established by the Library Board.

 

Organized non-profit groups may use the meeting facilities free of charge eight times per year provided meetings are open to the public and no fees are charged to attend. Room set up and take down will be the responsibility of the incoming non-profit group. Tables and chairs are available for set up. When booking your meeting, please include time for this.

 

Groups shall not use the fact of the meeting’s location at the library as an endorsement of their activity, view, product or services by the library, its staff, its governing board, or Brown County. Use of space is subject to the Meeting Rooms and Surrounding Grounds Use Policy. Reservations cannot be made until 60 days prior to the event.

 

By continuing on to the online request form you agree to the terms indicated in the Meeting Rooms and Surrounding Grounds Use Policy.
