Is there a fee for serving food or drink in the meeting room?

Renters must furnish and prepare their own coffee and provide all consumable supplies (cups, napkins, plates, flatware, serving utensils, etc).

Note: No food is allowed in the Naper Blvd. Conference Room.

What kind of food can be served?
You may serve simple refreshments (coffee, doughnuts, cookies, etc.), simple box lunches, or cold catered, or prepared food. You may not serve meals of a more elaborate nature as cooking and use of Sterno are not allowed.

Can I serve alcoholic drinks?
No, alcoholic beverages are not permitted anywhere in the facilities or on Library property.
