The library is a great community meeting place! We have two small meeting rooms that are frequently used for tutoring or counseling sessions and even gaming. We have a large meeting room which can be reserved for large groups and it now has a large screen and a projector installed.
We sometimes have meetings in our local history room as well. We’ve had quilters, the historical society, the Friends of the Library and groups planning class reunions meeting in this room. If you need a space for a meeting, check with the library about it--(706) 657-7857.
