Meeting Rooms

General Guidelines

Peter White Public Library has six reservable rooms available for community use. These rooms are divided into three categories: Conference Rooms, Meeting Rooms, and the Community Room. Rooms can be reserved 6-months prior to the event. 

Before using a room, it is important to become familiar with our Meeting Room Policy. Those reserving the rooms are liable for any damage to the rooms or to library equipment. 

Library rooms are NOT available for social events like birthday parties, baby showers, weddings, etc. 

Library programming and events take precedence over all other events. The second priority will be granted to the Marquette Arts and Culture Center. All other applications for use are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Rooms are available during regular library operating hours. Afterhours use of the library’s rooms is permitted with additional fees and prior approval. Last minute afterhours use is not permitted. 

Refreshments are permitted in the library's rooms. The Community Room has access to a small kitchenette. Failure to clean up after use may result in the loss of room use privileges.

The following information details the room guidelines, and most of our rooms can be reserved using this page. To reserve a room by phone or for more information, please contact Ann Richmond Garrett at 906-226-4300, agarrett@pwpl.info.

(Please note the two studio spaces on the Lower Level are under the management of the Marquette Arts and Culture Center. Please contact the MACC for information regarding these spaces, 906-228-0472.)

Integrated Technology and Equipment Rental

Five of the Rooms at PWPL have Integrated Technology available. This technology varies from room-to-room. More details on technology offered can be found using the online reservation system or by speaking with the Library’s Administrative Assistant.

It is recommended that patrons who need to use the Library’s Integrated Technology test the functionality of the room’s system with their personal equipment. Planning ahead ensures that your meeting/event will run smoothly. 

We are happy to meet with you prior to your event to show you how to use the equipment or help you troubleshoot the setup. Scheduling this meeting will ensure you have staff who are comfortable with the equipment on-site. The library may not have a technology expert on-site during all operating hours to help troubleshoot!

Equipment must be reserved at least one business day in advance. Reservations can be made with the Library’s Administrative Assistant.
