Our two meeting spaces are heavily used for both library programming and outside users. We turn away many requests each month from Scarborough groups looking for affordable, well-managed and accessible meeting spaces.
We hope to expand our meeting spaces, making them:
- both reservable and accessible after hours,
- prioritized for nonprofit community groups,
- also available to our entrepreneurial community for an affordable fee.
Our current meeting room is heavily used, but very inflexible and unable to accommodate large presentations. Our plans are to offer a space that can hold up to 100 people, but also be flexible enough to be divided into smaller spaces as needed.
We currently can offer only one large meeting space. We hope to offer smaller workgroup spaces that would be reservable and accessible even when the library is closed.
We don't even have a computer lab now, but when we do we want it to be connected to the public meeting space so that it can be better utilized by both the library staff and our community.
We want to provide safe, managed access to reserved meeting room space even during hours the library isn't open. We want this to be the community's space, not just the library's.
Help us with a pledge to meet our fundraising commitment; with your energy and ideas; or, at the very least, with your vote in November!
