  7. At the conclusion of the event, the chairs and tables must be put away, kitchenette left clean, floor vacuumed, lights turned off, and trash removed. Restrooms must also be left tidy.
  8. Failure to leave the space completely clean and neat will prohibit further use by the individual and/or group responsible.

Renovation Update:

The Milne Room will be unavailable to the public until Feb. 2, 2019, as renovations progress on the Katherine Paterson Children's Room and Milne Room. During this time, meeting space will still be available in our conference room, and select public events may use the Vermont Room meeting space. Please contact the director at with any questions or inquiries.
