Reserve the Buchanan Auditorium

NOTE: In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, for the foreseeable future, we will not be accepting requests to book the auditorium.

The Buchanan Auditorium is part of the Buchanan Center, and is available for appropriate use. The Buchanan Center is also the location of the Mansfield Public Library. The auditorium has a parking lot of about thirty spaces and its own entrance from Route 89 (54 Warrenville Road).

There is access to a small kitchen and three bathrooms (one is handicapped accessible, and has a pulldown changing table). The auditorium itself has wireless internet access, is carpeted, and seats 100 people comfortably in chairs. A sound system, wall screen, chairs and tables are available for use by groups booking the facility.

We are only able to book one event per Saturday.

Please be aware that if your booking requires the services of a custodian outside of the library’s normal schedule, your group must pay to cover the costs, generally between $96-$120, depending on the day.
