The Beaman Library offers two rooms for use by community groups and associations. The Muriel Stiles Meeting Room, which offers space for up to 80 people, and the Children's Story Hour Room which has space for approximately 25 people.
Library meeting rooms are primarily for the use of the library, library related organizations, and library sponsored programs. When not required for the use of the library or library related organizations, they may be used for meetings of local groups and organizations. Please read the Facilities Use Policy for details before booking a room. If your group qualifies, you can call the library at 508-835-3711 to check for availability. Groups using Beaman Library's meeting rooms are responsible for set-up and clean-up.
