Meeting Rooms

The Lyons Community Library has three rooms available for advanced booking by the public. 

Please read the entire Meeting Room Policy for more information. First time meeting room users must return the signed Meeting Room Use Form to the library when making their first room reservation. If the library already has a signed use form users may book online or over the phone. 

A security deposit of $200 is required for use of the Community and/or Effie Banta Meeting Rooms for all non-library sponsored events. If the room is left unclean or damaged, the deposit will be forfeited and the user will be responsible for any costs incurred above the deposit to
return the room to its original state


The Library Effie Banta Meeting Room, Community Room, and Horizon Drive Study Room are available for advanced booking by the public. All requests to reserve a meeting room may be made up to three months in advance of the first meeting date. Requests may be made by visiting the service desk, by phone, or on the library’s website.

In order to give all community groups an equal opportunity to use these facilities, individual meeting rooms:

  • May be reserved for no more than six consecutive weeks on a weekly basis
    • Groups who wish to rebook meeting rooms for additional consecutive meetings may do so one week prior to the date of their final meeting.
  • May be booked no more than 3 months in advance.
  • Should be booked at least one week in advance.

In an effort to provide access to meeting space for as many citizens as possible, the Library reserves the right to restrict usage of the space to 5 times per year to a person or group if demand warrants.

Use outside of Library Hours: The Community Room and Effie Banta Meeting Room must be reserved in advance for usage outside of library hours. The key must be acquired during normal operating hours and returned immediately after the meeting in the lobby book return.
