Community Nights at Schools
Meeting Space for Community Groups
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and Seattle Public Schools Superintendent José Banda announced a new partnership called "Evening Community Meetings in School Libraries" to open every school library in Seattle for use by community and neighborhood groups. Groups will be able to sign up online for a fee of only $15 to hold meetings in school libraries after school hours.
Any local community group or nonprofit organization is eligible to sign up, but the libraries are not available for business or commercial uses, nor for events that have admissions or fees. Reservations will be available from 6 - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday during normal school calendar academic business days.
Visit http://tinyurl.com/9ltgx4q where you can sign up for a user account, submit a request for space, and read the Seattle Public Schools rules and regulations (including the payment process and insurance requirements). The fee is $15 plus any applicable custodial or heating and cooling costs. You can find more details about the program in a fact sheet at seattle.gov/media.
