Meeting Room and Study Room Use Policy

In determining meeting room or study room use, the library does not discriminate against persons or groups on the basis of sex, color, race, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, or disability. The Library Board of Trustees delegates the authority to set conditions for room use to the Director. Groups must comply with all library policies and procedures.

The public library serves a neutral position in the community, providing materials and resources for patrons’ edification and enjoyment. As such, patrons are entitled to utilize the resources and facilities of the public library without intrusion of active or passive solicitation of any kind. Solicitation, other than to support the library's programs and resources, is contrary to the nature and intent of the library and interrupts the use of the library by patrons seeking an appropriate atmosphere for reading, self-education and research. No fees may be charged for admission or services nor donations solicited.

Meeting Rooms

The primary purpose of the meeting rooms is to provide appropriate space for library meetings and programs to support and promote the library's mission. However, when the rooms are not being used for library programs or activities, community groups and organizations may request the use of the rooms. Any group's use of the meeting rooms does not constitute the library's endorsement of that group's credentials, policies, or beliefs.

Study Rooms

FCPL also makes available study rooms for use by small groups or individuals. FCPL is happy to provide these spaces to the public and all are welcome to use them in accordance to the following rules.
