Community Rooms

Planning a gathering? These flexible spaces are perfect for meetings and lectures, knitting groups, or even a birthday or holiday party.

  • Room size and features vary from location to location - from small spaces for less than 10 people to larger rooms that can accommodate more than 100 people
  • These spaces can be rented during opening hours, until 15 minutes prior to close
  • Rental fees vary by space, and we have a reduced rate for non-profits and community groups

You can book a space by calling the branch directly. Our staff can confirm availability, book your time, arrange the meeting room contract with you, and collect the rental fee (if applicable).
