Room hire in Dudley

Whether you're looking for somewhere quiet to work or study or need to book out a whole meeting room for a work event, we have plenty of rooms for hire at our libraries across Dudely for personal and professional use.

From boardrooms for 5-15 people that are ideal for studying and smaller presentations to larger spaces that can fit up to 20 people, there’s something to suit all your needs. And, if there’s nothing suitable at your local library, our team can help you find another room across our Dudley locations for your function.

Looking for more space? We even have a selection of event spaces, like the Shenstone Theatre at Halesowen Library, complete with high-tech projector and sound system, or the Foyer at Dudley Archives, a large open space that’s perfect for exhibitions, performances and community functions.

Get in touch with your local library to find out more about what's available and hire fees.

No matter what you’re working on, we have several desk spaces at our libraries which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

From desks with charging ports to collaborative round tables, you'll be sure to find a space that's right for you.

Study booths

For more privacy, we also have study carrels and booths across most libraries. These are ideal for longer study sessions, remote working or just getting stuck into a good book. 

Study booths are also first-come, first-served.

Quiet study spaces

If you really need to focus, find a seat in one of the quiet areas across our libraries or reference spaces at Dudley Central and Stourbridge Library.

When using quiet spaces, please keep conversations and electronic device volume to a minimum so you don’t disturb others.
