Meeting and Study Room Use

Classrooms A and B combined

Meeting Rooms

The Library has several meeting rooms at the main library that may be reserved by members of the public free of charge. Please read our meeting room policy to find out about the criteria for room use and reservation information. Eligible members of the public may request the meeting rooms up to 60 days in advance. To reserve a meeting room, fill out a meeting room request form or call the Reference desk at 847-623-2041 ext. 238.

Please let us know when you make your reservation if you will provide food at your event. The library is unable to supply napkins, plates, and silverware for you. We kindly request that guests dispose of plates, etc. in the receptacles provided in the room.

Meeting room capacities vary based on your needs and desired setup arrangement. You may choose a setup option if you are making your reservation with 10 days’ notice.  Below, you’ll find examples of our standard room setups.

Meeting rooms are equipped with a laptop, data projector, and screen.

Main Floor Study Rooms

There are six main floor study rooms available, with seating from 3 to 8 people, depending on the room. The main floor rooms are available to patrons aged 14 years and older. All study rooms have a flat screen TV. Without a reservation, main floor study rooms are available first-come, first-served by members of the public.

Waukegan Public Library card holders may reserve a study room up to one week in advance for 2 hours by filling out a study room request form, or by calling the Adult Services Desk at 847-623-2041 ext. 238. If no one needs the study room, and the user’s time is expiring in 15 minutes, the user may extend their time for another hour.

Children’s Study Rooms

Children under age 14 may use one of our study rooms on the lower level. There are also family rooms available for parents to use with their children. Children’s department study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  These rooms have a capacity of 4 people.
