How to Reserve a Room:  

To view instructions and sample images of the Spaces website, click here for a PDF instruction sheet.

Step 1: Click here to go to Spaces and create an account.

  • Click the My Account button to create your account.

Step 2: Join or create an organization. All reservations must be linked to an organization.

  • Click the My Account button.
  • In the Organizations section, click “Add one now.”
  • Select an organization or click "Request to Create New Organization."
  • Fill out the request form as completely as possible.
  • Once your organization is approved, you will get an email stating that “you can now make reservations for this organization through your account.”
    • Please wait until you are approved before you move to step 3 to reserve a room.
    • Once your account and organization are approved the first time, you can reserve a room at your convenience.

Step 3: Click here to log in and search for availability at your desired date and time.

  • In your search results, rooms shown in green at your desired time are available.
  • Click the Pick Me button for the room you want to book.

  • IMPORTANT: 30 minutes of set-up and take-down time are added to every reservation.

    • Take this additional time into account when searching for available times.

    • For example: if you reserve a room for 7:00-8:30 p.m., Spaces will automatically reserve a time slot of 6:30-9:00 p.m.

    • Please note: if you request a room until 9:00 p.m., Spaces will list the rooms as unavailable. This is because the take-down time of 9:30 p.m. is later than the library’s closing time of 9:00 p.m. Use 8:30 p.m. as your end time instead.

    • Earliest reservation start time:
      9:30 a.m. Monday-Saturday (You may access the room at 9:00 a.m.)

    • Latest reservation end time:
      8:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday (You may use the room until 9:00 p.m.)
