Meeting Rooms

The Madison County Library System welcomes the use of its meeting room facilities for cultural, civic, educational and public information meetings of interest to the citizens of our county. Under no circumstances will individuals or groups be allowed to use a library meeting room for church services or for social functions (i.e., wedding receptions, birthday parties, showers, reunions, etc.). Policies governing the use of the library meeting spaces are made in accordance with Article 6 of the Library Bill of Rights:

Libraries which make exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.

Library-sponsored programs and library staff meetings or training programs will be given first priority in the use of meeting room space. Library meeting room space will then be made available to all non-profit Madison County groups on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to the requirements that follow. Individuals may be permitted to use meeting room or small conference room space for quiet study, but community groups will be given priority when requests for use are considered by the Branch Manager.

Meeting room capacity at each branch is determined by the Fire Code and must NEVER be exceeded. Capacity per branch is as follows:

- Camden Library: 48 Seated without tables, 16 seated at tables
- Canton Library: 100 Seated without tables, 36 seated at tables
- Flora Library: 65 Seated without tables, 22 seated at tables
- Madison Library: 88 Seated without tables, 29 seated at tables
- Ridgeland Library: 90 Seated without tables, 30 seated at tables
