Meeting Room

The primary function of the Thornton Meeting Room is to provide space for Library sponsored programming and special events. When not in use for Library programs, the room may be available for use by local community groups as outlined in the Meeting Room Policy and Meeting Room Use and Parking Guidelines (links below) if such use would not interfere with library operations.

A community group that would like to schedule use of the Thornton Room must read the Policy and Guidelines to ensure they meet the criteria for use before submitting their application. Please note the lack of custodial service (no fees are charged since users must set up the room themselves, then return the furniture to the original configuration and clean up after themselves) and the limited availability of the room during the Library’s open hours are required due to limited parking.

Completed applications must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the requested date and cannot be submitted more than ninety days in advance.  The Library Director or their designee will review all requests to determine if the request can be accommodated and notify the requestor of their decision.

Please note: In addition to the links below, the Meeting Room Policy and Meeting Room Use and Parking Guidelines and Application to Use the Thornton Meeting Room are available in paper form at the Circulation Desk of Brooks Free Library.

Completed applications should be emailed to brooksfreelibrary@clamsnet.org, dropped off at the Library or mailed to Brooks Free Library, 739 Main St., Harwich MA 02645.
