With the exception of the Friends of the Price James Library, the library Board of Directors, and other library support groups, the meeting areas are not available for commercial or profit making purposes. Such commercial use includes, but is not limited to, programs or presentations designed to promote the purchase of products of services. In addition, personal events, such as birthday parties and bridal showers, are not allowed.
