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.

During the library building closure, all room reservations are suspended. We anticipate this limitation to last several months. The Friends' Activity Room and the Community Room are for community group reservation only and must be booked in advance; rental fees may apply. A completed room rental application must be received before dates can be confirmed. Applications may be dropped off at the library, mailed, or emailed. Please refer to the Meeting Room Policy for information.

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.
