Our new library building is scheduled to open in 2024 and will offer meeting rooms and a large Community Room that may be reserved by Fanwood residents and SPF Public School-related organizations. Applications should be made to the Library between two and six weeks in advance of the date; and the rooms shall be reserved no longer than three months at a time.
Room reservations must end fifteen minutes before Library closing time to allow cleanup and exit before the Library is locked. No individual may be inside the Library without staff present.
No furniture or equipment may be moved or used without prior permission. Chairs and tables should be returned to the original location upon completion of the meeting, and lights and technology should be turned off.
Light refreshments may be served with the approval of the Director or library staff. All food and serving utensils must be removed at the end of the meeting. The Library cannot provide storage for any group’s supplies.
A representative from the group must both sign in at the circulation desk as well as sign out with the actual number of attendees to be recorded.
Until further notice there is no charge for the use of the rooms during Library hours. If use of the rooms proves to be a financial or administrative burden to the Library, a fee may be imposed. Payment of gratuities to any Library employee is prohibited. Donations to the Fanwood Memorial Library in lieu of any fees are graciously accepted.
Any incident must be reported to the Library staff member in charge who will fill out the mandated incident report.
Groups wherein the point of view is wholly partisan or sectarian may NOT use these rooms, nor may the spaces be used for individual profit or commercial purposes.
