Meeting Room Policy

Meeting rooms are designed for the Lodi Public Library programs and use. When not in use by the Library – and to further our mission to expand access and opportunity to knowledge in the hopes of creating and promoting a more intellectual, creative and welcoming community – the Lodi Public Library encourages the use of its meeting rooms for educational, cultural, and community meeting-related meetings, programs and activities.

It is not the primary intention of the Lodi Public Library to generate revenues through the use of its meeting rooms, nor for meeting rooms to be used as on-going school/classroom facilities (other than the Lucas Computer Learning Center); instead, the intention is to further the mission of the Library as created by the Lodi Library Trustees.

Meeting Rooms are not intended to be used for private events such as social events, parties, memorial services, fundraisers, etc.

The Library Board of Trustees reserves the right to amend this policy from time to time. *Adopted by Library Board of Trustees on September 15, 1997. Amended November 9, 1998, October 18, 1999, October 21, 2002, January 20, 2005, and April 2014.

Meeting Use Priority

Priority use of the meeting rooms will be given in the following order:

  1. Library sponsored meetings, events and programs;
  2. The Friends of Lodi Library and the Lodi Library Foundation, and any other organization/committee created by the Lodi Library Trustees to further the mission of the Library;
  3. City sponsored meetings, events, and programs;
  4. Non-profit civic organizations/schools/government agencies;
  5. Groups based on Lodi;
  6. All remaining groups will be given consideration on a first come/first served basis

Meeting rooms may not be utilized unless they have adhered to the Reservation Procedures below. However, the Lodi Public Library encourages the use of its meeting rooms for student study groups, Library-sponsored tutoring, and other uses consistent with this policy. Therefore, groups and teams are encouraged to use the Tutor Rooms and other rooms if they are available to work on projects, receive/provide Library-sponsored tutoring, and impromptu meetings. In these instances, inquiries related to the availability of these rooms and to reserve their use can be made at the Circulation Desk.

Meeting Room Charges/Fees

Non-profit and civic organizations, for-profit organizations, schools and government agencies offering meetings, programs or activities of educational, cultural or community interest may use the meeting rooms free of charge for meetings that are open to the general public, for which no expectations of possible clients and/or future monetary gains are hoped for, for which no admission fee is charged and at which no soliciting or selling is done.

Non-profit and civic organizations, for–profit organizations, schools and governmental agencies may use meeting rooms for a fee (set forth in the rules) for meetings that are closed to the general public, for which an admission fee or registration is charged or at which soliciting or selling takes place.
