Meeting & Study Rooms

The Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, as a public institution, welcomes the use of its meeting room facilities for educational, cultural, and public information meetings which are of public interest. Use of the meeting room is made available to all groups on a first-come, first-serve basis subject to the requirements in our policy. 

Programs sponsored by HEML, the HEML Library Boards, and other Library or Town-related organizations will be given first priority in the use of the meeting room.

Study space is available in our teen area. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is non-reservable. At this time, we do not have private study rooms.

Please review the Meeting Room Policy before reserving a meeting room. For additional questions, email

Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library has one meeting room available for reservation.

  • Holds up to 60 people.
  • Tables, chairs, and podium are available.

  1. Application to use the meeting room must be made by submitting the attached application form online or in person at least one week prior to the meeting date or at the discretion of the library director. Rooms may be scheduled up to two months in advance.
  2. Applications will be accepted and scheduled in the order received. In order to ensure the most equitable use of meeting rooms, only one meeting at a time may be scheduled. Following a meeting, a group may schedule another meeting if the room is available at the desired time.
