  3. Meeting rooms are not available to non-library groups or individuals for the promotion or sales of services or products, fundraising, conducting classes for profit, or private social functions.  Meetings shall be open to the public.  No admission or attendance charge or required donation may be assessed by any non-library group using a meeting room.
  4. The library may permit presenters at library-sponsored programs to sell merchandise related to the subject or activity of their programs. The library will grant this permission either to reduce the cost of the program to the library.  Likewise, a library-sponsored program may have a registration charge to defray or reduce the cost of the program to the library.
