Reserving a Room
The Public Lecture Hall is available to public non-profit, civic, cultural, or educational gatherings and organizations for meetings or events when the room is not being used for their primary purpose: Library and Museum activities.
Public programs sponsored by a government agency or non-profit organization and non-commercial programs of special interest are permitted. Private social events, such as birthdays, wedding receptions, or funerals, and commercial activities are not permitted. Event and meeting room facilities are available for lawful public use on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.
While the Library and Museum defend the right to free speech, they do not condone hate speech and the events and meeting room facilities may not be used by groups or individuals who engage in it. The Library and Museum do not necessarily advocate or endorse the views of meetings or events held in their facilities. Permission by the Library and Museum to use its facilities does not constitute an endorsement by the Library and Museum staff, the Board of Trustees or the City of Belen.
