MEETING ROOM - "A"
INSIDE THE LIBRARY'S CARNEGIE EAST WING - (SHELBYVILLE / NEXT TO MAIN LIBRARY)

MORRISTOWN MEETING ROOM

INSIDE THE LIBRARY'S BRANCH IN MORRISTOWN, IN 

MEETING ROOM - "B" 
INSIDE THE LIBRARY'S CARNEGIE EAST WING - (SHELBYVILLE / NEXT TO MAIN LIBRARY)


AT THE SHELBYVILLE LIBRARY: Meeting Rooms A and B are in the back half of the Carnegie East Wing - located beside the library in what used to be the Kiefer's Furniture Home. Please use "Entrance B" which faces the main library to enter the building. 

The community room is located on the lower level of the library's main branch. Please note that this room is not enclosed; therefore, there is not a way to block noise from visitors of the library. Staff members also sometimes have to pass through this area to use the staff kitchenette. We recommend reserving one of the other meeting rooms for any event that requires privacy. Accommodations to use the side door to this room can be arranged with the library's front desk. 

All rooms are equipped with mobile tables and chairs. The legal capacity is 90 people in the rooms without furniture, though we have found that they seat 35-40 people (with furniture) comfortably. 

Call 317-398-7002 to check availability and make reservations.


AT THE MORRISTOWN BRANCH: The library also has a meeting room available at our Morristown Branch. This room is equipped with a conference table, chairs, and marker board. This room will comfortably host up to 25 people (35 with furniture rearranged).
