The Brighton District Library provides both Study Rooms and Meeting Rooms. Study rooms may be reserved online from this link or by calling the information desk, 810-229-6571, ext.227. Study rooms can be reserved up to 2 hours a day, up to one week in advance. The four rooms each can accommodate up to 8 people.
Meeting Rooms include a Conference Room with a capacity for about 12 people, and the “A/B Room” which has a maximum seated capacity of 65. The majority of meeting room time is reserved for Library program use. Eligible groups may schedule programs on Wednesday evenings, up to six months in advance. Space not being used for library programs will become available on a month-to-month basis. Meeting Rooms can be reserved for any non-profit group or organization which is based in the Brighton District Library District, provided the use of the rooms is for civic, educational or cultural purposes and not for the financial benefit of private individuals or profit-making organizations. In most cases, there is no charge for the use of the rooms, but donations will be accepted, and checks should be made out to Brighton District Library.
To reserve the A/B or Conference Room please contact Sue Wilson at 810-229-6571, ext. 206 between the hours of 9am-2pm, Monday – Wednesday and Friday, or fill out the online application. To view events that are currently scheduled, please check our events calendar.
