CHECKOUT POLICY for NTLC CARDHOLDERS
Important: NTLC cardholders (participating libraries listed below) are strongly encouraged to contact their home library AND Sanger Public Library to inquire about Launchpad checkout before travelling to Sanger Public Library.
Launchpads may be checked out by cardholders from other NTLC libraries under the following conditions:
The following libraries are a part of the NTLC (North Texas Library Consortium) group:
We have several computers available for public use, as well as a copier, printer, scanner, and fax machine. Our WI-FI network is free and does not require a password to connect to.
Two laptops are available for library use only.
Requirements for laptop checkouts are:
Meeting room equipment:
Ceiling mounted projector with Component Video and VGA inputs
Stereo System with Stereo inputs and Bluetooth audio connectivity
Local nonprofit organizations, educators, and groups of two or more individuals who would like to engage in a not-for-profit activity that adheres to the library’s policies may use the meeting room during the library’s normal operating hours through arrangements made with the library staff. Library and city sponsored events have priority, and other groups on a first come, first served basis. Before or after the library’s normal operating hours, the meeting room will only be available for city and library-sponsored activities and meetings.
Requests for use of the meeting room should not be made more than 30 days in advance. The application form should be filled out and signed by an official representative of the group.
Applications may be rejected and previously granted permission may be withdrawn at the discretion of the library director or authorized staff member for violation of the meeting room rules or conduct inconsistent with the library’s policies.
Rules for Use:
A driver’s license or $75 deposit will be collected before the room is used by groups not sponsored by the city or the library. The deposit will be returned if the room is left in clean and orderly condition (or in the same condition as it was in before the event). The person reserving the room is responsible for the condition of the room and its contents. An application form should be filled out and a staff member will let the individual or group in the room. When the meeting is over, a staff member will check the room and lock the door. If there is damage to the room or more extensive cleaning is required, a fee will be assessed to cover the costs of repair or cleaning.
The size of the group shall not exceed the maximum capacity of 50 persons. The room comfortably seats 30 or less.
The user is responsible for all table and chair arrangements.
The room should be left in a neat, orderly condition. If not, the group will be given notice that future access to the meeting room may be denied.
Smoking is prohibited in the meeting room or elsewhere on the library premises.
Advertising and the sale of merchandise or other materials related to a for-profit venture is prohibited unless specific approval is obtained in writing from the Director prior to the meeting (Examples of exceptions are book signings and educational events).
Only light refreshments may normally be served in connection with a meeting, although exceptions may be made with prior approval. No alcoholic beverages are permitted. The room must be left clean, including any kitchen equipment used.
Granting permission for the use of the meeting room does not imply the endorsement of the Sanger Public Library Director or Staff. The library cannot be responsible for loss or damage to exhibits or personal property left in the room. Neither the Library Board not the City of Sanger will be responsible for any accident or injury incurred during the use of the meeting room.
