A Description of the Meeting Room
The Eureka Main Library's large meeting room has a maximum standing room capacity of 150. Approximately 80 people can sit comfortably. There are a screen, projector, and sound system. Tables are available on request. Light refreshments may be served as outlined in the meeting room rules linked below. There is a small counter with a sink and a place to plug in your coffee urn.
In normal times, Library meeting space is available to non-profit civic, educational and cultural groups or organizations. During the pandemic, however, the library is not hosting meetings or indoor events.
All Meetings Must be Free & Open to the Public
In addition, the meeting room is not available for sectarian religious meetings, purely social purposes, commercial purposes or for the benefit of private individuals. If used for a political meeting, both sides of a political race or issue must be presented. A schedule of all meetings will be posted in the library’s lobby.
For Events Not Sponsored by the Library
For events that are not sponsored or cosponsored by the Library, there is a $50 charge for each time the room is used. A Certificate of Insurance of liability coverage, naming the County of Humboldt as an additional insured, for 1 million dollars ($1,000,000), must be on file with the library prior to using the room.
Meetings in the large meeting room must begin during the library’s open hours, Tuesday through Saturday. They may continue after the library closes until 11:00 p.m.
