The Reading Public Library now offers virtual meeting space for Reading non-profits and individuals.
Meeting rooms were one of the most popular services offered by the Reading Public Library (RPL); an inexpensive option for non-profits and local community groups in need of meeting space. And while browsing and other services have returned to the RPL by appointment, due to the COVID-19 health emergency, meeting rooms are still off the table. Now, RPL is pleased to offer a virtual meeting room for our patrons. This virtual space, via Zoom, is available for Reading non-profit and non-commercial organizations, groups, or individuals that serve the Reading community or are Reading residents.
“Public libraries in other municipalities are offering this valuable service to non-profits who cannot afford to pay for Zoom”, says Assistant Director Michelle Filleul. “During this time when the Reading Public Library physical meeting space is not available, we also want to offer a solution for local organizations.”
The virtual meeting room space can accommodate up to 100 participants for up to three hours. Virtual meetings are available during the library’s hours of operation and all meetings, events, or programs must be open to the public. Virtual meeting rooms are not available for private social functions.
