 4/2017

The Easttown Library Foundation was incorporated in 1997 as an independent 501(c)(3) organization dedicated solely to developing financial resources in support of the Easttown Library & Information Center. Its first task was to launch a capital campaign in support of the construction of a new home for our Library. With the capital campaign’s successful completion and the opening of the new building in 2003, the Foundation has remained committed to its mission, through efforts that focus on Annual Fund giving, legacy gifts, major gift solicitation, grant seeking, and special events. At the end of 2011, the Foundation Directors formed an Endowment Fund to enrich the present and ensure the future of the Easttown Library. The Easttown Library Foundation Endowment Fund is administered under the umbrella of the Chester County Community Foundation (CCCF). For more information on the Easttown Library Foundation Endowment Fund you may download our brochure here.

Meeting Room Reservation Form

Meeting Room Fees

Meeting Room Policy

The Easttown Library & Information Center provides meeting room space for library purposes and for other meetings and programs of an informational, educational, cultural, or civic nature. Meeting rooms will be made available to the public in accordance with the American Library Association's "Library Bill of Rights" (as amended 1/23/1980 and reaffirmed 1/23/1996), whose sixth principle states that "Libraries which make ... meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use." Organizations using the meeting rooms must observe the public accommodation provisions of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act which safeguards the rights to public accommodation "regardless of race, color, familial status, religious creed, ancestry, age, sex, national origin, handicap or disability, use of guide or support animals because of the blindness or deafness of the user or because the user is a handler or trainer of guide or support animals."

It is not the intent of the library to provide space on a frequent and permanent basis to support the primary activities of an individual, group or organization. The library provides these spaces as a public service, but does not endorse the view or opinions of groups utilizing these facilities. Library activities or co-sponsored programs are given priority in the use of all meeting rooms.

The following equipment may be requested for use during the rental at no additional charge: laptop with a LCD projector; a podium with microphone and a DVD/Blu-ray player with a projector. Equipment must be reserved when scheduling the use of a meeting room to ensure availability. The Kohn and Arronson Rooms have projection screens. The library has free WiFi.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to the library. Groups must allow up to 48 hours for any application to be processed. 

The small meeting rooms (Friends, Ward, Beatty and Harron) may be used on a first-comefirst-served basis if they have not been reserved ahead of time. A customer who uses a small meeting room on a first-come-first-served basis may have sole access to the room for two hours, or less if the room was previously reserved. Depending on room availability, room reservation time may be extended for an additional 2 hours. At any time during a 2 hour room reservation extension, customers may be asked to relinquish the room to others waiting to use it.

With the exception of first-come-first-serve users, all meeting room users must submit a room reservation form. Forms will be kept on file for repeat users. 

Booking of large meeting rooms is on a first come first served basis. Reservations will be accepted for up to six months in advance. Recurring reservations must be renewed semiannually to remain in force. Meetings may be held during the library's normal operating hours. Depending on availability of staff, earlier hours may be scheduled for the Arronson and/or Kohn Meeting Rooms. A group composed of minors (under eighteen years of age) must have an adult chaperone attend the meeting. This person must also sign the meeting room application form. A schedule of meeting room use for the current week will be posted for the public in the library.

In the event that a scheduled meeting is cancelled, the library should be notified as soon as possible. Additionally the library reserves the right to alter the meeting room schedule according to the library's needs. If the library closes due to an emergency or inclement weather, contacts for all of the programs scheduled for that day will be notified if possible.

Fees for Usage

Fees for the use of the meeting rooms are based on the current Meeting Room Fees Schedule, which is posted in the library and on the website.

Proctoring Policy

 

The Easttown Library will proctor exams in print or online format. While the library does not charge a fee for proctoring, all expenses, including copying, faxing and mailing will be paid by the test-taker. Prior to scheduling an exam to be proctored by Easttown Library staff, prospective test-takers must first read and agree to this policy and fill out and submit the Test Proctoring Form.

Exams will be proctored by appointment only. Arrangements (i.e., date, time and proctor) must be scheduled in advance of the exam date. Exams may be proctored 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday. All exams must be completed during these hours.

Before agreeing to proctor an exam, the proctor will review the proctoring instructions to ensure that library staff can comply with the requirements of the test-takers' institution. Should additional requirements be stipulated after a proctoring appointment has been arranged, staff reserves the right to decline proctoring the exam if staff cannot fulfill the additional requirements or if the added requirements contravene this policy.

If an institution requires the test-taker to receive constant and uninterrupted observation, the library will be unable to proctor the exam. Any suspicious activity observed by the proctor will be reported to the test-taker's institution.

Photo identification is required for all tests. When proctoring an exam, library staff will fulfill the instructions provided by the institution. The proctor will ensure that the test-taker only has the permissible materials (books, papers, calculators, etc.) while taking the exam. Unless otherwise stated in the exam instructions, the proctor will temporarily hold the test-taker's cell phone until the exam is over.

Easttown Library cannot guarantee that a private room will be available for the test-taker. The library is a public space, and therefore may include distracting noises and conditions.

Library staff is not responsible for taking an exam to the Post Office or other carrier to meet a mailing deadline. Tests being mailed will be sent with other library mail through the U.S. Postal Service at the ensuing pick-up time. The student or institution must provide an envelope with correct postage for mailing.

Reference Services Policy

The mission of the Reference Department at Easttown Library is to help customers locate and access information and library materials. Reference questions will be answered in person, by telephone, email or fax. Our mission is accomplished by courteously conducting the reference interview as appropriate, and accurately providing answers to customers' questions, providing instruction in how to use the library resources to access information, or in referring customers to other appropriate sources or outside agencies for information. Reference staff endeavors to respond to the customer at his/her level of expertise with the resources available in-house and online. While answering reference questions, staff will not offer personal opinions, except when providing reader's advisory services.

Reference staff will provide basic computer use and Internet instruction for customers, but cannot provide in-depth computer assistance. Customers requiring lengthy assistance using the computer should make an appointment for one-on-one computer training. In order to protect the customer's privacy, Easttown Library staff is prohibited from directly assisting customers with confidential information, such as social security numbers and electronic banking information.

Library staff will not provide advice or interpret texts in any specialized areas, including but not limited to the areas of medicine, law, or taxes. We will provide guidance to resources on these subjects, and give brief descriptions and/or definitions from authoritative in-house and online sources. Specific tax forms and publications will not be suggested.

Art Displays Policy

The Easttown Library makes available wall space for display of artwork, and a display case for display of collections and artwork. Exhibit and display space is made available to community members and groups, but priority is given to displays that promote the Easttown Library and its events and services.

The Easttown Library welcomes exhibits in the display case, provided that they are of general interest and serve to inform or enrich the community. Sales cannot be made from the display case. Procedures and the form for the use of the display case are available at the Circulation Desk and on the library's website.

When the library hosts exhibits and the works are for sale, the library will receive a negotiated percentage of the sale price of each piece sold. During such exhibits, library staff will collect payment on behalf of the exhibitor(s), with all monies held separately from library funds. Individuals and groups who are interested in displaying artwork in an exhibit at the Easttown Library should review the Guidelines for Art Exhibits, and submit the Art Exhibit Application, available at the Circulation Desk or on the library's website.

The library neither endorses nor sponsors the individuals or organizations that furnish the exhibits or the items exhibited.

You can cancel your museum pass reservation on TixKeeper. If you cannot pick up your reserved pass, but don't want to cancel your loan, please call the library on the first day of your reservation. If you choose to continue with your loan, please note that you will have one less day of total checkout time for the museum pass.

Where do I return my museum pass?
Please return the museum pass to the Easttown Library Circulation Desk during business hours. Do not drop the pass into the outside book drop, or return it to any other Chester County Library.

Can I cancel my reservation?
You can cancel your reservation via TixKeeper, under the My Passes tab, or by calling the library at 610-644-0138.

What if I reserve a museum pass, but don't check it out?
If you do not notify the library that you cannot pick up on the day of your reservation or simply do not pick up your museum pass, you will forfeit your reservation. The first time you fail to pick up your museum pass, you will receive a warning. The second time you will be unable to make a reservation for six months.
