Community Services

Reference

We can help you find information on home and car repair, directions to places, and more. We are trained in how to find and evaluate information so we can help you find useful information faster. We can also help you locate organizations that help with educational, legal, medical, tax, debt and other problems.

Meeting Rooms

The public meeting rooms are primarily for the use of the Library for conferences, meetings, activities and library programs. Programs sponsored or co-sponsored by the library or other Haltom City departments take precedent over all other programs.

As a service to the community, we also make the meeting rooms available to other local institutions, organizations and groups of civic, cultural and educational nature and individual residents when the rooms are not scheduled for use by the library or other city department. Use of the meeting rooms by these groups or individuals is subject to the usage regulations and charges listed in the policy manual. To check availability & rates click here.

All reservations are subject to cancellation in those instances where the library or other city department requires the room for its purposes. In such cases, we will notify the applicant at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled use.

Organizations, groups or individuals who fail to comply with all policies and procedures of the library, who fail to pay assessed fees and charges, who damage equipment or furnishings, or who cause disturbances shall be ineligible for use of the facility in the future.

Call our administrative office at 817 222-7790, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday - Friday, for more information and fee schedule.

We offer local and long distance fax service. Charges are $1.00 per page. The charges apply to both sending and receiving. We do not provide international faxing. Faxes may be sent from the Copy & Print Center during Library business hours. The fax number used is 817-788-1499.
