Payment of Fees

Charges must be paid to the administrative office no later than five business days before your meeting date or the reservation will be canceled. Make checks payable to the Des Moines Public Library. The libraries contracted caterers must be paid separately.

If the facility is being used for a fund-raising project, all tickets must be advance sales. No public parties or group events charging or collecting admission on the premises will be allowed. No group may accept donations on library premises. No mention of alcohol may be used to enhance sales.

Please note: If a reservation is not fully paid five business days before its scheduled start time, it will be canceled. The library will refund any partial payments or deposits made up to that point by mail. This excludes all after hour rental deposits.
