Meeting rooms at branch libraries of The Seattle Public Library may now be reserved for dates beginning March 1, 2017 and beyond with a new meeting room reservation software at spl.org/spaces. Make, edit or cancel meeting room reservations from your Spaces account.


How to sign up for a meeting room online


  1. Create a free account using your email at spl.org/spaces.
  2. Once your account is confirmed, you can search for and reserve a meeting room.
  3. Library staff will review your request and send you a confirmation via email once it is approved.
  4. On the day of your meeting, show up at the branch and check in with the staff member at the Information Desk.


Reservations can be made 120 days in advance.  Patrons are able to book up to 10 hours of meeting room use per month.


Patrons with Spaces accounts may also call or speak with a Library staff member in person to make a reservation. Library staff members can help you make, edit or cancel reservations if needed.


To learn more about using the Library's meeting room reservation system, please see the online tutorial. An informational brochure is also available at all Library locations.


Two Library locations are not a part of the online reservation software - NewHolly Branch and the Central Library. To reserve the NewHolly Branch meeting room, contact the branch directly. To reserve a meeting room at the Central Library, visit its Meeting Rooms page.
