Our meeting rooms are intended to further the library’s mission of facilitating the free exchange of diverse ideas and information. The rooms, therefore, are generally reserved for library activities, including programs presented by library staff, by the Friends of Rogers Free Library, and/or other groups affiliated with the library. Whenever the meeting rooms are not being used for library activities, however, they may be available to the public for educational, cultural, non-profit, civic, or governmental programs or meetings.
