The use of meeting space rooms is currently free, but donations to the Library or the Lancaster Public Library Foundation are accepted.
The Community Rooms and the adjoining kitchen are available to the community for meetings, programs, and events. The Community Room has a capacity of 87 or can be split into two smaller rooms with capacities of 43 each.
The Performance Plaza is a unique outdoor venue. There are outlets for sound equipment and other electronics, as well as a storage area for items that will be used regularly or which will be stored at the Library full-time.
Study rooms are intended for use by individuals to work in a quiet environment and for small groups to work or meet privately. Study Rooms may be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis no more than a year in advance. They may also be used by walk-in patrons if there are no standing reservations.
