Sno-Isle Libraries Board of Trustees Policy

Purpose

To affirm the role of Sno-Isle Libraries (Library District) in providing access to its public meeting rooms on a fair and equitable basis to community organizations and groups regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.

Scope

This policy applies to the public use of meeting rooms owned or managed by the Library District. Meeting rooms not owned or managed by the Library District, such as in a city-owned building, may be governed by different policies.

Programs and activities sponsored and co-sponsored by the Library District, Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, local Library Boards, and local Friends of the Library groups are considered to be Library District programs and activities and are exempt from this policy.

The Library District, Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, local Friends of the Library groups, and Library District cosponsors may sell books and other products if the activity supplements the meeting and is not a requirement for attendance. Co-sponsorship must be confirmed in writing.

Direct fundraising activities may be conducted only by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation and local Friends of the Library groups.

Implementation

The Library District considers public use of its meeting rooms to be a community service where groups can come together to learn and exchange ideas in a commercial-free environment. The Library District is committed to providing free reservable spaces in community libraries across the Library District to further the Library District’s mission that everyone in our community is connected to their library.

All public usage of Library District meeting rooms will be open to the general public regardless of the attendee's gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, or religious or political affiliation.

Library District meeting rooms are available for public use free of charge, and no products or services may be advertised, solicited, or sold on library property. No entrance fees may be charged to meeting attendees.

Permission to reserve and use a space does not constitute an endorsement by the Library District of the group, program, or point of view expressed. The name of the Library District may not be used in any publicity for non- library sponsored or co-sponsored meetings except to designate the meeting location. The Library District may not be identified as a co-sponsor of a meeting without prior written approval.

Customers reserving and using Library District meeting rooms will comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Library District policies. Non-compliance with laws or  Library District  policies may result in a group or organization being denied further use of Library District meeting rooms.

The Library District reserves the right to cancel public meeting room reservations if the meeting room is needed for Library District use or other unforeseen circumstances. Meetings or events which interfere with normal Library District operations or are anticipated to incur additional costs to the Library District will not be accommodated.

Library Managers or designees are responsible for interpreting and applying this and the associated Library District Meeting Room Use administrative guidelines in daily practice. The decision to deny use of a Library District meeting room may be appealed in writing to the Director of Community Libraries who will provide a written response to the request.

Associated Policies and Laws

Process

This policy is reviewed every four (4) years by the Executive Director (or designee), who makes recommendations to the appropriate Board committee. The committee reviews the recommendations, revises the policy as necessary and appropriate, endorses, and advances the policy to the full Board for approval.
