Make sure you reserve adequate time for your meeting. For instance, if you plan to begin your program/meeting at 7 p.m. and need time to set up, book the room for 6 p.m. or 6:30 p.m.

Remember that you must vacate the room 15 minutes before the library closes.

Don't wait too long to reserve a meeting room. The Library's meeting rooms are heavily used and timeslots fill quickly. Plan ahead!
