Use of the Lincoln Heritage Public Library (LHPL) facilities is provided as a community service

to patrons with the exceptions as stated in the policy. 

The first priority for use of the facilities is given to library-related or sponsored programs and activities. 

The fact that a group is permitted to meet at the library does not in any way constitute an endorsement

of the groups’ policies and/or beliefs by the library, its board, or its employees.


The LHPL located in Dale has three (3) meeting rooms located on the lower level.

Local fire ordinances dictate room capacity.

            Hoosier Room – 252 people maximum seating

Spencer County Room – 114 people maximum seating

Little Pigeon Creek Room – 100 people maximum seating

Also available is the Café, across from the elevator- 12 maximum seating


For groups of 10 or less, the main level study room may also be used on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Also for public use are the Coffee Table/Oversized Books room and Storytime Room,

if the study room is not available. 


A form needs to be completed at the circulation desk when using any meeting/study room,

as the library needs an accurate count of usage for statistics purposes.
