Rules revised for using library meeting rooms
The Lexington Public Library meeting room policy was updated and approved Dec. 10. The new guidelines are: Rooms are available for non-profit, for-profit and community organizations seeking to hold free meetings, trainings and workshops. The meeting rooms may not be used for direct sales, solicitation, non-library fundraisers, social or celebratory events. All activities held in the meeting rooms must comply with the library's code of conduct, meeting room regulations, and all applicable local, state and federal laws.
The needs of the library and its affiliated groups take precedence over non-library use of rooms. Meeting rooms are free of charge; however, a $25 fee will be assessed for groups wishing to serve certain types of food. Electric appliances and heating elements are prohibited.
Users of the meeting rooms are required to indemnify and hold harmless the library including all claims or actions attributable to the use of the library facilities.
