West Fargo Public Library now accepting meeting room reservations

The public can now reserve meeting rooms at the West Fargo Public Library. This service was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic but resumed Monday, June 21. At this time, the library has two meeting rooms that the public can reserve. These rooms are intended for use by non-profit groups and for city-sponsored events, however, for-profit businesses may reserve a room for a fee. The rooms can be reserved in advance for any time during library business hours unless the room is being used for a library event or is already reserved by a different group. Before reserving a library meeting room, the public should review the West Fargo Public Library meeting room policy which can be found at westfargolibrary.org.
