LIBRARY * Capacity: 40
Located above the kitchen, this room was rumored to be the “Spanish library”. Beaded board ceiling and wainscot, this space has a lovely view of our front oak tree and Vaughn Bay. It’s our most “rustic” space for rent and it is not accessible to those with mobility issues. Access is via the stairs to the upper balcony.
The Shelter was built in 2014 through the collaborative efforts of many community organizations.
The Picnic Shelter may be reserved from 8am until 9pm when the Civic Center gates close. This area is popular for family birthday parties and is adjacent to our playground and field.
