Meeting and Study Rooms

Whether you need a place to study quietly, or are a local non-profit group, we have space available to suit your needs.

Mable Murphy Meeting Room (capacity 120)

The Mable Murphy Meeting Room is located on the first floor near the main entrance in the lobby's northern corner. This room has a sink, a piano, a podium, a microphone, a movie screen, WiFi access and projection equipment for video, DVDs and other digital files/presentations.  Notification of specific equipment needed must be included on your reservation request. 

There are tables and chairs which can be set up to your specifications for a $30 fee or you can configure the furnishings yourself.

The Meeting Room may be reserved by a Homewood Public Library cardholder 18 years of age and older, as long as the meeting is for non-profit purposes and the majority of the attendees are residents of Homewood and/or East Hazel Crest.  Any given group can reserve the room just 4 times each calendar year.  The Library reserves the right to set a reasonable time limit for use of the Meeting Room.  Meeting room use must be completed by the time the Library closes. 

Use our Room Reservation software to apply for use of the Meeting Room.
Reservations will be confirmed by email.  For more information, please contact Ashley at 708-798-0121 ext. 284.  If you need to cancel a reservation, you must call the library.

Study Rooms
Study Rooms are located on the second floor. Three of the rooms will accommodate one person, two of the larger rooms will accommodate two people and one group study room will accommodate 3 to 12 people.  Registration in person is required for a 3 hour session.  If all rooms are in use, we are glad to take your reservation for the next available room.  Telephone reservations or reservations for a time later in the day can not be taken.
