All six CCPL locations have meeting rooms available for public use during library hours. Meetings can be conducted Monday through Saturday at all locations, Sundays year-round at the Eldersburg and Westminster branch, and Sundays during October - April at our other locations. Meeting rooms are not available on library holidays. All meetings must begin at least 30 minutes before the library closes. Please review our Meeting Room Policies and Regulations.

How do I cancel or revise a meeting room reservation?
Cancellations can be made via the link in your confirmation email or by calling your local branch. Visit our locations page for contact information. (Please state the branch, large or small room, date, time, and organization). To revise your reservation, cancel the original reservation and place a new reservation or call the library where the reserved room is located.
How much does it cost to reserve a room?
Meeting Room use is free for Non-Profit groups and individuals.
The fees for For-Profit groups are as follows:
Small meeting room: $25.00 per 2 hour block (Effective September 1, 2019, the cost will be $15 per 1 hour block)

Meeting room use is charged in 2 hour increments, which includes setup, meeting, and teardown. For example, if your meeting is 2 hours and you add 30 minutes for setup or teardown, you are responsible for payment of a second 2 hour block of time. If you are able to complete your setup, meeting, and teardown within one 2 hour reservation, you are only charged for 2 hours.
