Library Meeting Room Policy
As an expression of its mission to connect people with information, ideas and experiences, the Denver Public Library provides meeting rooms in the Central Library and branch libraries. These rooms may be used by members of the community for the presentation and exchange of information and opinions. The Library makes these rooms available on equal terms to all persons and groups, regardless of opinion or affiliation. By making a meeting room available as a forum, the Library does not sponsor or endorse the views of any group using the room. These rooms are available to groups of at least five people.
A complete packet of Library policies and guidelines is available upon request. Please contact Sherry Spitsnaugle, Events Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
