The move of Logan City administrative offices out of the Library into city hall freed up space, part of which is now available as meeting room space to various groups and organizations.
Before that there was just one meeting room available.
“We have some sort of meeting or activity here just about every day and many days we have multiple groups on the same day,” said Library Director Robert Shupe.
He said for some groups there is a fee, for others there is not.
“There is availability for any of the meeting rooms if the organization is a non-profit group or for educational purposes. They have to be open to anyone that wants to come. If they meet that criteria, they can use the room for free.”
He said there are also groups happy to pay a small fee.
“Businesses will sometimes rent a room in order to sell a product or talk about a service they provide. Of course, in those cases, they can limit those who can attend the meeting.”
Shupe said in 2013 657 groups held 1,149 different meetings in the five available meeting rooms at the Library.
“Capacity of the rooms ranges from about 15 chairs up to 70, which is the largest.”
Shupe said information about reserving meeting rooms is available at <a href=”http://library.loganutah.org/information/meeting.cfm” target=”_blank”>library.loganutah.org</a>. Fees, when required, range from $10 an hour to $20 an hour. Refreshments are allowed in most rooms.
Reservations can be made online.
