How do I reserve a room?
Library meeting rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. Rooms may be reserved up to 90 days in advance and must be made at least 24 hours before or before 4pm on Friday for weekend reservations.
Use of the room will be confirmed when official confirmation is received by the meeting organizer. Confirmation will be sent to the meeting organizer within 24 hours of receipt or on the next business day.
Telephone reservations can be made over the phone by calling (502) 839-6420 on weekdays from 9am-5pm. However, to take advantage of all the features of our room reservation system, it would be best to make your reservation online.
How far in advance can I reserve a meeting room?
Reservations are accepted inside a 90-day window.
How often can I use a Library meeting room?
You may use Library meeting rooms once per week unless approved by the library director.
I want to make a reservation online, but I can't select the right date. What is wrong?
Online reservations should be made at least 24 hours prior to the meeting, except at the discretion of the library director based on availability. The meeting room procedure also limits how far in advance you may use the meeting room. If you are attempting to reserve a room for a day more than 90 days in the future, the system will not allow you reserve time on those days.
May I hang things on meeting room walls?
No items are allowed to be hung on the walls, doors, etc.
