Reserve a Room

Although Kitsap Regional Library provides staffing, materials, telecommunications and administrative services for all of nine community libraries, outreach services and the bookmobile, the physical buildings are operated by a number of different organizations.

Some libraries offer free use of meeting room space for educational, cultural and informational community meetings and programs that are open to the general public. The procedure for reserving a room and the policies that govern its use vary from building to building.

To reserve a room, find a meeting room. Call the designated contact person and set up your meeting.
