Meeting Rooms


People meeting

The Elyria Public Library System provides meeting space in its locations where groups can gather for civic, cultural, social, and educational purposes, when they are not in use for library events. 


Our high-tech meeting space at the Central Library is a great place to do staff trainings and presentations. It has Smartboards and wireless audio and Internet technology, along with training-style tables and chairs for 60+. Catering is permitted and there is a kitchenette for staging and clean up. The Miller Room at the West River Branch Library, offers easy access from major highways and more available parking. Meeting rooms are available at all EPLS locations. All of our buildings are handicapped accessible, have public restrooms, and offer free parking.

We want to give the public access to these great meeting spaces when they are not in use for Library programming. Requesting meeting rooms is typically on a three-to-four month rotation based on Library use.
