Graphic announcing our new event calendar software.New Calendar and Room Reservation System Starting 3/4/24

On Monday March 4, the Royal Oak Public Library will begin using a new calendar and room reservation system. In the new system, you will be able to:

  • View and register for programs
  • Sign up to use a study room or the small conference room
  • Reserve the Friends Auditorium
  • Reserve equipment in the Makerspace

In the meantime, you will only be able to make study room or small conference room reservations through Sunday March 3, 2024. Thank you for your patience as we transition to our new software.

The Friends Auditorium is available for rent to groups engaged in educational, cultural, intellectual, civic or charitable activities. It is not available for private functions such as birthday parties, wedding receptions or family reunions. Please see the links below for rates, terms and conditions. Submitting an application does not guarantee a reservation; staff will connect with you to confirm.
