Public (Virtual) Meeting Space

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, in-person use of our meeting spaces for meetings or other gatherings are not possible at this time. We remain committed to serving our community by facilitating connections using our Zoom meeting service.

BDL Patrons can now set up and run their own virtual meetings with support from trained library staff. A virtual meeting space is available from the library through Zoom, a web-based conferencing software system that requires a compatible device and an Internet connection to participate.

How It Works

  1. Check the availability of your desired date on our calendar.
  2. Submit a virtual meeting reservation request using the form below.
  3. Receive confirmation of your virtual meeting’s day, time, and host (either you or the person you determine will host your meeting).
  4. Receive a Zoom link to your virtual meeting.
  5. Library staff will meet you virtually 15 minutes before your meeting starts.


  • To reserve a virtual meeting space, you must be 18 years or older.
  • Per our Public Meeting Space Policy, this Zoom meeting space may be used by non-profit groups and clubs. The meeting room is not available for commercial interests such as insurance agents, for-profit tutors, attorneys, or salespeople to meet with clients.
  • You are not permitted to use our virtual meeting space to sell goods or services, solicit donations, and you may not charge fees to attend.
  • Each meeting is limited to 2 hours or less, with 100 participants or less.
  • Meetings must begin no later than 6 pm, Monday through Friday, no later than noon on Saturday.
  • All requests are subject to approval. Please submit the request form below as far in advance as possible of your desired meeting date for the best chances of approval.

Support BDL Provides for Your Meeting

  • Fifteen minutes before the meeting start time, a library staff member will share a brief introduction of Zoom with the meeting host.
  • If you choose, you can also schedule a learning session with library staff to understand more about how Zoom works.
  • Library staff will leave your meeting once it starts and will not be available for support should any technical issues arise.
