Meeting Room usage at all Chillicothe & Ross County Public Libraries has been suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency. The online room reservation system will be restored when the library returns to normal operation.

The Chillicothe and Ross County Public Library has several meeting rooms available for public use to promote the cultural, educational, and civic welfare of the community.

Several of our rooms have projectors that you are welcome to use (any with a star(*) below have projectors). Please note: You are responsible for bringing your own laptop and cords to connect to the projector. All of our projectors work with VGA cords, and most also work with HDMI. Additionally, some of our rooms have sound that can be connected with a standard 3.5mm audio jack.  If you have questions about how to use the projectors or sound please get in touch with us in advance of your meeting.
