Background: The Board of Trustees and the staff of MML are very appreciative of the support offered by the Yarmouth community to the library during the 2014 Capital Campaign. After a year or more of hard work, we are eager for the community to enjoy the spacious and beautiful third floor, as well as all the dramatic improvements on display throughout the historic building.
Intent: Our goal is to encourage and welcome the community, in all its diversity, to use the building for activities related to non-profit, literary, cultural, educational and community events by individuals and groups. We understand and celebrate the diverse functions now sponsored by libraries, and wish to be challenged by the community to respond to its needs and wishes. In general, MML is guided by the “Use of Meeting Room Space” of the town of Yarmouth.
Procedures: Requests for use of either third floor room must be made by application. These will be available both online and at the library. An up-to-date calendar of room availability will also be online shortly. Until then inquiries as to availability should be made to the library’s Director. Completed applications should be submitted to library staff who will verify room availability, and whether the event fits with our guidelines. All applications must be approved by the Director of the library. MML sponsored programs will take precedence over programs sponsored by outside organizations.
Please note, applications for monthly reservations can be submitted only 60 days ahead of time.
