The library does not provide audio-visual equipment for outside events and programs.
The library assumes no responsibility for personal belongings.
The library reserves the right to close in the event of an emergency and will refund all fees where applicable.
Library meeting rooms will be made available at no charge to all nonprofit organizations, religious organizations (must have a permanent place of worship outside the library), school-related organizations or other groups approved by the director.
Proper documentation of non-profit status must be presented. Please provide us with your 501(c)(3) documentation (click here for a sample) or proof of registration with the Ohio Secretary of State’s office (click here for a sample) after making your reservation; you will receive an email confirmation.

The use of meeting rooms for private organizations and personal gatherings will be allowed for a fee of $30 per hour per room. A refundable $100 deposit will be charged per reservation, and a check will be reissued from the library after the event via mail as long as the customer follows the meeting room guidelines posted on the library website. An additional fee may be assessed if damages to the room exceed the $100 deposit.
To reserve the rooms for private social events (such as birthday parties, family reunions, or baby showers) customers must be residents of Cleveland Heights or University Heights and have a library card in good standing.
