The library will reopen its meeting rooms to the public on Monday, Nov. 15 with a new reservation system. FCPL asks customers to continue to observe county guidelines by wearing masks when using meeting rooms, regardless of their vaccination status. Customers who want to reserve meeting rooms will need to call the location where they plan to hold their meeting.
The meeting rooms have been closed since March 2020, due to the pandemic shutdown. While the meeting rooms were closed, library management evaluated the best way to handle meeting room reservations post-pandemic, said Library Director Brian Hart. Many of the changes to the process for reserving meeting rooms are the result of customer feedback.
All first-time meeting room users at Central, Clemmons and Paddison locations are required to have meeting room training before using a meeting room.
Meeting rooms may not be used for social gatherings such as showers, birthday parties, dances or exercise classes.
To reserve a meeting room, customers must be at least 18 years old and have a FCPL library card in good standing.
Additional rules about meeting rooms are available on the library's website.
