Please read the guidelines before reserving a room.
Meeting rooms are free for non-profit, community and for-profit/business groups regardless of their beliefs or affiliations. If you have questions or would like to schedule an after-hours reservation, contact us.
Please check in with a staff member when you arrive to confirm your reservation.
- Minimum attendance for meeting rooms is 7. Maximum attendance (15-178) depends on the size of the room reserved. Groups fewer than 7 may use unoccupied meeting room spaces for up to three hours at a time on a walk-in basis: check in with a staff member onsite to reserve the space.
- Meeting Rooms may be booked for a maximum of 40 hours per month per group.
- Meeting rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They may be booked in advance online or by calling 303-LIBRARY (303-542-7279).
- Groups should notify Arapahoe Libraries 24 hours in advance to cancel. If a group has not arrived or called to report a delay within 30 minutes after the scheduled time, staff may allow others to use the room.
