The Library offers free meeting rooms to community groups hosting free programs or meetings which are open to the public. Rooms are accessible either by elevator or stair and restrooms are conveniently located in close proximity to the spaces.
Spillette Meeting Room
The Spillette Meeting Room is the largest space. Located on the lower level, and accessible by elevator, it is perfect for bigger gatherings. It comfortably seats up to 100 people in a lecture atmosphere or, if you prefer, your audience can sit at up to ten tables.
In this space, the Library provides
- a large screen
- a podium with a microphone
- a DVD unit
- a laptop that connects to a projection unit
- a kitchen with a cooktop, refrigerator, and a large coffee urn.
- The refrigerator, replaced in 2017, was made possible by a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation.
Please note that the use of the kitchen requires a $10.00 maintenance fee.
Also on the lower level is the historic Board Room with the beautiful stained glass windows from the O.C. Barber mansion. This space can accommodate up to ten individuals gathered around a large meeting table. This room is appropriate for adult meetings.
The Barberton Public Library has two study rooms available on our mezzanine level accessible only by stairs. These rooms are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
