Book a meeting room or event space at the library.

Effective March 1, 2022: Room rental bookings are open for the Central Branch Auditorium and the Glen Abbey Branch Collaboration Room. All other room rentals remain unavailable at this time (excluding drop-in spaces at select branches).  

Oakville Public Library has rooms that are used to conduct library business such as programs, events or meetings. When not required for library use, select rooms are available for rental to individuals, groups and organizations.

Rooms may be rented for a minimum of one hour between the hours of branch opening to a half hour before branch closing. Opening and closing times vary at each branch. Depending on availability, rooms may be rented after hours upon approval by contacting the branch directly.
