The meeting rooms at the Southborough Library are available without charge to local, non-profit groups for educational, informational or cultural meetings or programs. No meeting is allowed that promotes any business or commercial activity.
 
All meetings and programs must be open to the public without charge regardless of whether an individual is a member of the organization. All groups requesting use of the Eaton or the "Book Sale" Room must fill out an application form provided by the library and must indicate a person of legal age (18) who will be responsible for the condition of the room.
 
Use of the meeting rooms for library purposes will take precedence over all other reservations. To allow flexibility for library sponsored events, the library administration reserves the right to reschedule or cancel advance room reservations. Every effort will be made to avoid such cancellations and to give as much advanced notice as possible.
 
Those using meeting rooms in the evening are asked to leave 30 minutes prior to closing time. We appreciate your cooperation and respect in the use of library space.

In addition to serving as a meeting space, the Ella Eaton Room currently houses the Southborough Library's Historical Collection and serves as the library's art exhibition space.
