Douglass Branch Meeting Room

Meeting rooms are available by reservation, with reduced capacity. You’ll need to speak with a staff member to reserve a room. Call  217/403-2050.

There is one large meeting room at the Douglass Branch Library. This space is jointly owned by the library and the Park District. The maximum temporary capacity is 10 people.

Please read our Meeting Room Policy for more details before requesting a room.

Please note

  • Groups may have up to 6 reservations in place at a time.
  • Reservations can be made up to 6 months in advance, but no less than 48 hours before the event, so that we can plan for setup.
  • To keep our library looking neat and clean, please keep all tables, chairs, and signage inside the room. To display items, bring floor easels; do not attach items to walls or chair rail.
  • Please leave the room clean and in good condition. If excessive cleanup or any damage repair is required after your meeting, you will be charged $60 per hour (minimum charge $25), or the actual cost of the repair.
