Space Availability - South County

The Commons at South County Library has two large meeting rooms, business office, and an auditorium. These rental spaces are available during the Library’s normal hours of operation, as well as before or after hours, when possible, and additional charges apply.

The meeting rooms are reserved on a first come, first served basis on a six-month schedule. A group may be moved to a different room, if necessary, to address conflicting needs.

Meeting Rooms

Groups will be given 30 minutes prior to their meeting, starting as early as 9:00am, to handle their meeting setup including furniture layout. Rentals will not be booked past 30 minutes prior to closing. For example, if the library closes at 8pm, you may book your meeting to go no later than 7:30pm.

Meeting Room 1 typically seats 40 people in a theater set up. It is the smaller of the two meeting rooms.

Meeting Room 2 typically seats 24 people in a classroom set up (tables and chairs). It is the larger of the two meeting rooms. Both rooms can be combined into one larger space. For configuration examples on how you can set up your space please give us a call at 540.772.7507 or email circulation@roanokecountyva.gov.

Payment of the Meeting Room Usage Fee is due before the meeting begins at the service desk.

View the fee schedule here. Please note that staff will make adjustments to invoices prior to you making payments. For example, community groups will receive a discount to reflect the fee schedule rates. If you need a copy of your invoice prior to your meeting, please call the library and we will email you a copy.
