Reserve a facility, display materials

The Ruby B. Archie Public Library is a City of Danville facility intended primarily for the provision of library materials, services, and programs. While the Library seeks to work cooperatively with other community organizations and may sponsor or endorse cooperative activities, the building and grounds are not available for public access, non-library-related programs, meetings, or events. The selling of products or services is not permitted in library facilities or on library grounds unless the library sponsors such activity.

Reserve the AUDITORIUM

The library meeting room, or Auditorium, is available to rent for a fee of $25 to businesses, community groups, and organizations for educational purposes such as training classes, seminars, lectures, client consultation, and small meetings. The Auditorium is the only room that is available for rent.

Reservation requests must be received at least 15 business days in advance of the desired date and time, and due to limited availability, only one reservation will be accepted at a time. Requested dates and time must fall during Library hours of operation. The Library reserves the right to cancel reservations and refund payment for any reason.

Anyone wishing to reserve the Library’s meeting room must prepay and submit a Meeting Room Application acquired from the library administration specialist.

A Facility Rental Contract must be renewed every year.

DISPLAY Materials

The Library provides a limited area for the display of marketing materials, subject to the following conditions:
  • Availability of library materials will take precedence
  • Materials will be timely and in demand
  • Documents will be related to organizations, services, or events that are from the City of Danville 
  • Materials will not be of a commercial or personal nature
  • Documents will not endorse specific political candidates or ballot positions


The Library offers artists, collectors, and organizations the opportunity to display their work to the community. Exhibit space is limited and will be provided on a first come, first serve basis and is subject to the approval of the Division Director of Libraries. Interested exhibitors must complete an Exhibit Application and Waiver Form acquired from the adult services specialist.

The Library Staff may remove any non-Library exhibit for any reason and without notice.
