Room Reservation and Usage


Room Types Event Rooms


As part of our service to the community, the St. Charles City-County Library provides meeting rooms, study rooms, or event spaces for use by local community groups, organizations, and individuals.

A new Library policy on Room Reservation and Usage will go into effect at the beginning of September. Customers will be able to reserve library event, meeting, and conference rooms through to the next calendar year starting each year on the first Wednesday of September. For 2023-2024 registration opens Wednesday, September 6. 

Rooms may be reserved by taxpayers of St. Charles County with a valid Library card in good standing.

  • The individual reserving the room must be present for the duration of the reservation.
  • The individual has reviewed the room usage policy and agrees to abide by it in its entirety.

Please note that during 2024, there will be some interruptions in availability of meeting rooms due to Library renovations. The Spencer Road Branch will be closed for construction January 1 through July 31, 2024. The Middendorf-Kredell Branch will be closed for construction July 1 through December 31, 2024.


Room registration for 2023-2024 opens Wednesday, September 6, 2023
