When considering a library performance, please be aware:

  • Capacity of the library rooms is regulated by fire code and must not exceed regulations.
  • No collections for admissions or fees may be collected on the premises.
  • Performances which extend beyond normal hours require prearrangement.
  • All marketing materials and promotional materials concerning the event must be submitted to the Director prior to disbursement.
  • No food or beverage may be served or consumed in the library without prior consent.
  • Performers are required to be at the library at least 15 minutes before the event begins.
