Royston Public Library & Lavonia-Carnegie Library Meeting Rooms

The public meeting rooms of the Franklin County Libraries (Lavonia-Carnegie Library and Royston Public Library) are designed to advance the ideas and purposes expressed in the libraries' mission statement and strategic plan. The facilities should serve as a public resource by providing access to library and other programs for educational, informational, cultural, and civic functions of the community.

Priorities for Reservations

  1. Meetings and events sponsored by the library, which are allowed precedence over all outside groups or individuals.
  2. Events cosponsored by the library.
  3. Meetings of the agencies of local government which fund the library.
  4. All other reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
  5. The library reserves the right to revise any schedule of meetings if necessary and to preempt established reservations upon reasonable notification of the group(s) involved.

Reservations and Scheduling

  1. Reservations for use of a meeting room are made according to procedures established by the Athens Regional Library and Franklin County Libraries staff.
  2. Reservations must be made by an adult (18 years of age or older). Groups with participants younger than 18 years of age must have adult supervision. The adult who signs the reservation must arrive prior to the beginning of the event, must be present throughout the entire event, and must remain until the departure from the library campus of all under-age attendees.
  3. The signee/contact person for each group is responsible for ensuring that each member of his or her group is aware of and abides by all library regulations and policies.
  4. Meeting rooms are not available during library holidays.
  5. Meetings may be held in the libraries' meeting rooms before or after regularly scheduled library hours only when prior arrangement has been made and approval has been given by library staff for the hours requested. Procedures for borrowing keys for meeting rooms must be followed as outlined by the Branch Managers.
