MEETING ROOM USE POLICY
The Bullitt County Public Library Board of Trustees extends to the Community and County use of the library meeting room facilities as an outreach service, to be used, free of charge, by civic, educational, cultural, and professional organizations of Bullitt County. 1. Library sponsored activities are given priority in scheduling use of the meeting rooms. Other activities will be scheduled on the basis of the order of requests. 2. The meeting room can only be pre-booked for a 3-month period and will have to be reviewed for future bookings after that time. 3. Scheduling priority will be granted to public gatherings of a civic, cultural, educational, or professional nature. 4. There will be a $25. key deposit due when key is picked up. If the meeting room is left in acceptable order, the $25. key deposit will be returned at the time the key is returned. 5. Children or youth groups using the meeting room must be supervised by adult sponsors (at least one adult per 10 children under 14 yrs.). The sponsors will be present at the designated time of the children's arrival and remain until all children have departed; and will accept responsibility for the children until the premises are departed. Youth groups (ages 14-17) must be accompanied by at least one adult. 6.
