Now accepting 2017 Meeting Room Reservations.
We will begin accepting 2018 applications on November 1.
We will begin scheduling for 2018 on November 15

Meeting Rooms are available at all locations of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System. Information on the size of the meeting rooms and accommodations at each library can be found here (Step 1).

The primary purpose of these rooms is to provide space for activities and programs related to the Library's goals and objectives. When not required for library purposes, the rooms may be scheduled free-of-charge by non-profit community organizations and parish governmental agencies, subject to the approval. Persons requesting meeting room space must be residents of East Baton Rouge Parish and must have a library card with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library.

The fact that the East Baton Rouge Parish Library and the Library Board of Control have authorized a group to meet in the Library does not constitute endorsement or sponsorship of the organization or the views expressed by the group as a whole or by individual participants in the meetings.

In order to use the meeting rooms, organizations must make application in accordance with the directions and guidelines outlined in this policy. Contact information and meeting schedules must be updated annually in December. We strongly encourage groups to make their application online and we will be happy to assist you in the process.
