Meeting Spaces

Denver Public Library Meeting Space Policy

As an expression of its mission to connect people with information, ideas and experiences to provide enjoyment, enrich lives and strengthen our community, the Denver Public Library provides meeting spaces in the Central Library and branch libraries. While spaces are designed primarily for Denver Public Library programs and use, meeting spaces may be reserved by customers for programs and meetings. These spaces may be used by members of the community for the presentation and exchange of information and opinions of all kinds. The library makes these spaces available on equal terms to all persons and groups, regardless of opinion or affiliation. By making a meeting space available, the library does not sponsor or endorse the views of any group using the space. The library may not be identified as a co-sponsor of a meeting without prior approval. The library is not responsible for personal items or equipment. Approved by the Library Commission, May 15, 2014.

Terms of Use

The Denver Public Library welcomes groups and organizations to reserve meeting space at library facilities and requires customers to comply with library meeting space policy and guidelines. The library has the right to preempt any meeting for library use. In such cases, the library will make every reasonable effort to assist the group in reserving another date or library facility. In the event of a cancellation, library staff will notify the responsible party with as much notice as possible.

The Library reserves the right to review each prospective use and determine whether that use falls within the Denver Public Library Meeting Space Policy and Terms of Use. Use of the premises may be terminated at any time if the conduct of the group or any member of the group is disruptive or harmful to the facility, library materials, exhibits, furnishings or other individuals. Private parties are not allowed in branch meeting spaces. Organizers may charge for admission to the programs they present in meeting spaces they rent. Sales of related books, music and or products are permitted and all such sales are the sole responsibility of the booking organization. All library facilities are non-smoking. Meeting spaces of the Denver Public Library are accessible to people with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Library staff or representatives may enter premises at any time and on any occasion. With the exception of service dogs as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act, animals may not be brought onto library premises.
