Seminar Rooms

Meeting Spaces

Our meet­ing spaces are not in use due to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic. We plan to reopen for inside pro­grams and meet­ings when COVID num­bers are on the decline and it is safe for staff and patrons fol­low­ing CDC, DeKalb Coun­ty Board of Health and oth­er gov­ern­ing agen­cies’ recommendations. 

Sem­i­nar rooms are avail­able at these branch­es.
