EVENTS

Each Library location has a large Events space to host lectures, classes, large group meetings, and more. Some locations offer the ability to combine multiple Events rooms to create an even larger space if you are hosting conferences, trainings, or another large-scale event. Events spaces are equipped with technology, seating, and podiums.
