Using Our Meeting Rooms
(Facilities Use Policy)
As part of its service to the community, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh provides meeting room space in some locations for use by cultural groups and neighborhood and civic organizations. Meeting room space is made available by the library "on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use." (Article 6, Library Bill of Rights). Meetings must be for purposes consistent with the objectives and goals of the Library. These include meeting community information needs, individual enrichment, and the support of the educational, cultural, civic and recreational activities of the community. Use of library space may be subject to the approval of the Deputy Director.
Meeting room facilities are available in many of the agencies of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Groups are invited to request use of meeting facilities by contacting the agency head. Since facilities and furnishings vary from agency to agency, group representatives may arrange a visit to a facility to view the space before booking a meeting.
Agency managers can provide Facilities Use Application and offer further details regarding eligibility, fees, reservations, equipment and other concerns.
