The Elmhurst Public Library welcomes the use of its meeting rooms for use by community groups when such use will not interfere with the primary functions of the Library. As a limited public forum, Library meeting room use will not be denied to any person or organization because of race, creed or color. The Library Board subscribes to the tenets of the Library Bill of Rights, which states in part: “Libraries which make exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.” Use of the meeting room does not constitute library endorsement of the viewpoints expressed by the participants in the programs.
First priority for use of the meeting rooms is given to Library-sponsored meetings or programs. The following groups also may use meeting rooms for cultural, civic, and informal educational purposes:
− Library-related groups
− Elmhurst governmental organizations
− Elmhurst not-for-profit organizations or corporations.
− Elmhurst non-business related local clubs or organizations
− Elmhurst businesses (for a fee).
