Meeting Rooms

Do you need a room for a meeting, display or performance?  We have a variety of rooms available for booking that you can request through library staff or through Spaces. (Instructions are available here (pdf).

 Library spaces are not available for birthday parties, showers, or other celebrations (with the exception of small wedding ceremonies in the Brodie Fireside Reading Room). All Library locations have wifi. Click here for hours and locations of our Community Hubs. You may review the Contract for Use of Thunder Bay Public Library's Meeting Spaces online here (pdf).  

Details for booking each space are located below.

There is no charge for non-profit groups and co-sponsored Library programs.

Room details:

External groups may request that a smudging ceremony accompany their library meeting space booking by calling the Director of Communities at 807-684-6813 or emailing comments@tbpl.ca. External requests must be made one week in advance of the event date. If the indoor designated smudging area is occupied or unavailable during the requested time, staff may recommend a designated outdoor smudging area.
