Book a Space

Find the right room for you at 20 Library locations

Need some space?

Whether you’re looking for a place for your book club or condo board to meet, or you’re organizing a study group or community gathering, the Library has you covered. Use your free Library card to book free meeting spaces in 20 libraries, with capacity ranging from five to 50 people.

Rooms at community libraries require advanced booking unless marked as drop-in or same-day bookings. All meeting rooms and production studios at Central Library accept same-day bookings.

Book a free meeting room

Rooms can be booked when the Library is open, up to 30 minutes before closing.

Early access for bookings that start right when the Library opens is unavailable.

Exceptions:

  • Quarry Park Library's Program Room and Meeting Room 1 can be booked outside of Library hours, when the YMCA is open.
  • Central Library’s event spaces are available for after-hours bookings. Central Library’s BMO Financial Group Community Room and rooms 0-13 and 0-14 can be booked individually. If you wish to book these large meeting rooms along with the Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall, please visit Event Spaces at Central Library.

Every room is different. Features include:

  • Whiteboards

  • Electrical outlets

  • Audio-visual connections and displays

Creative Studios

Head to Central Library to craft the next great podcast, web series, or video blog. These bookable studios for audio, video, and post-production are self-serve, DIY spaces that can be booked for up to three hours.
