When submitting either the written form or the on-line form you agree to the "Tweed Public Library Meeting Room Policy" and the following "Policy Statements".

 

I understand that confirmation and acceptance of the application is subject to review by the Library CEO.  I have read the meeting room policy for use of the Tweed Public Library Meeting Rooms and will insure that I, or my organization if applicable, am in compliance.  I and my organization releases, indemnifies and will hold harmless the Tweed Public Library Board and the Municipality of Tweed, their officers, agents and employees, from any and all claims for injuries, damages or loss which may arise or which may be alleged to have arisen out of or in connection with the meeting.  I understand that I will be responsible for all damages resulting from the use of this facility.

I accept that I will be responsible for returning all equipment to designated Library personnel or specified location at the end of the scheduled program.  Failure to do so may result in charges or additional charges.  I also I understand that I am responsible for any and all damages to the equipment while it is in my custody. 

In the event of equipment malfunction, I will notify Library personnel.  However, I understand that the Library does not have media staff to instruct in proper hook-ups.  Instruction sheets have been provided to assist in proper hook-ups.  I understand that alternative hook-up arrangements may not yield proper results and may damage the equipment for which I will be held responsible.
