Book Your Next Meeting Room with This New Tool

Springfield-Greene County Library patrons can reserve meeting rooms using a new, easy tool beginning Oct. 1. The site is rooms.thelibrary.org.

Simply select a date and the library branch you prefer, and check for available rooms. You can see photographs of each room, seating capacity, amenities, and equipment.

All current reservations made through the previous Spaces online system will be transferred to Reserve, so patrons don’t need to submit a new reservation.

 If you don’t have access to email and need to book a room, or need immediate booking assistance, call your preferred library branch.

Reservations will be managed by library staff during regular library hours. Once a reservation is submitted, that time is blocked by the reservation request so no double bookings occur.

Library staff will review the request, verify that it complies with the library’s approved meeting room uses, and send an email confirmation in a timely manner. Staff will follow up with an email if there are any questions. (Meeting room policies can be found at thelibrary.org/meetingrooms.)

 Here are some guidelines for using the new system:

Not sure which type of room you need? Ask a librarian for details.
