Meeting Rooms

Free public meeting rooms and study rooms are available in all of our libraries. Events held in these rooms must be free and open to the public, and the room can't be used for commercial purposes.

Meeting Room Policies


Our full meeting room policy​ is available for you to read, but here's what you need to know to get started:
  • To reserve a room, submit your request online. All Scott County Library rooms can be reserved online. You'll receive an email confirmation if your request is approved.
  • You can request a room up to 90 days in advance, and can have a total of 15 reservations at a time.
