How to Present a Program to the Community
Mt. Lebanon Public Library hosts educational, informative and/or entertaining programs for our community. We are not seeking programs on financial planning services. Programs can NOT be promotional in nature or held with the intention of generating revenue.
To be considered as a program presenter at the library, you must:
- Read the Library Program Policy and make sure your program meets the criteria.
- Fill out and submit an online Program Information Form.
- Submit your application 6 to 8 weeks in advance of your chosen program date(s). This will allow the library time to adequately advertise your program and ensure the largest potential audience is reached. For example, if you want to put on a program in October you should submit your request in late August.
- Someone will contact you within 72 hours of receipt of documentation.
Our meeting rooms are intended to house programs and events. You will be assigned one of these three spaces.
|Meeting Room A||22' x 39'
|Meeting Room B||23' x 16'
|Children's Story Room||22' x 24'
The children's programming receives priority in the Children's Storyroom. In the event that Room A or Room B is unavailable, you may receive the Children's Storyroom as an alternative room assignment. If you need to get together with a small group, in a less formal setting, please call 412-531-1912 and ask to schedule a study room with a reference librarian.
If what you really need is just a quiet space to gather and study or discuss an issue then what you probably want is a quiet study room. Quiet study rooms have a maximum capacity of eight people and are ideal for small groups to get together less formally than a program hosted in one of the larger meeting spaces. Study Rooms can be reserved up to one week in advance. They can be reserved for a maximum of two hours. There are four to choose from, three with equal size and one slightly smaller. There are also conditions that apply to these rooms:
- Always check in at the Reference Desk prior to taking a room.
- Business transactions of any type (including paid tutors) are not permitted in the study rooms.
- Reserved study rooms will only be held for 15 minutes beyond scheduled start time.
- No documentation is required, just an agreement to follow the rules and the Meeting Room Policy.
