You can hire a meeting room at 5 libraries across the county.

If you would like to book private study space for a small number of people, you may like to consider one of our study pods. Study pods are free to use by library members for 2 hours at a time. 

  • You can hire a library meeting room by the hour on Monday to Saturday.
  • Please be aware that rooms cannot be hired during the 15 minutes before library closure. 
  • Meetings room hire is subject to groups/organisations having their own Public Liability Insurance in place with an indemnity limit of £5million. The Council can assist by using its own policy which provides an extension to cover third party hirer’s liability for non-commercial voluntary community groups.

Meeting room hire is charged at the following hourly rates:

  • Community hire £10 per hour

This rate applies to local community groups and registered charities who support one or more of the stated aims of the Library Service and do not charge attendees.

  • Business hire £20 per hour

This rate is targeted at supporting new and developing small businesses. Individuals and groups with a community value who charge attendees, but for whom profit is not the prime motive are also included in this group. It also applies to company training courses.

  • Commercial hire £40 per hour

This rate applies to all other sessions where admission is charged. It includes any type of selling/marketing activity.

Please note that charges may apply for any room bookings cancelled at short notice.
