Library Auditorium...that the Library's auditorium is available to rent?  It's true.  Auditorium rental includes seating for 80, dining and buffet tables, a kitchen, and use of the library's public restrooms.  You can even rent it when the library isn't open.  The space is great for celebrations of all types: birthdays, graduations, baby showers, and other gatherings.  Businesses can rent the space for meetings, trainng sessions, and other activities that do not include selling products or services. Rental fees begin at $75 for up to five hours if the contract is signed by a resident of the library service area and $100 if outside the service area.
