Study Rooms and Meeting Rooms
There are nine first-come, first-serve study rooms on our eastern wing. Read the rules for using study rooms for details.
The Friends' Activity Room and the Community Room are for community group reservation only and must be booked in advance by telephone at 734-397-0999. A room rental agreement must be completed and rental fees may apply. Please refer to the Meeting Room Policy for information prior to calling.
From January through May 2018, our Friends' Activity Room and Community Room will not be available for reservation. We've compiled this list of other meeting rooms available in Canton for your convenience. Our study rooms are still open and available on a first-come, first-serve basis unless otherwise noted by a schedule posted on the door to the study room.
