Meeting Spaces

Each branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library is home to a public meeting room that is available free of charge. These rooms, in fulfillment of our mission are available for educational, instructional, or civic programs when library programs are not scheduled. 

To request a room, call 419.259.5310.


The Locke Branch which opened in 1917 was one of the original Carnegie constructions.  The current building was completed in 2007, built with funding obtained from a 10-year bond levy approved by Lucas County citizens in 1995.  This branch is named after David Ross Locke (1883-1888), one of the early owners of The Toledo Blade.  Locke wrote the popular Petroleum V. Nasby letters which were loved by President Abraham Lincoln for their satiric abolitionist humor.
