Meeting and Study Rooms

DC Public Library offers a variety of meeting and study room options for public use, and spaces for rent at MLK Library for private events.

Meeting Rooms

Meeting rooms are available for free to customers with a valid library card. Reservations are reviewed and approved or denied by library staff within 48 hours of reservation.

Some activities, such as serving food or recording your meeting, require pre-approval from the Library. When you book your room, please be ready to share:

  • A description of what you’ll be doing during your meeting
  • If you plan on bringing food to the meeting
  • If you plan on recording your meeting
