Easy to book with great window view for a quick meeting space. Note that the library requires at least two people onsite before unlocking the room.

Not soundproof! I was having a meeting with one other person. Librarian later came in to say the walls were not soundproof, and the staff on the other side of the wall could hear everything we said. There needs to be a sign in the room saying that because some info discussed may be confidential or personal in nature.

Entry door is locked so if you leave you get locked out and have to get librarian to get back in! Key card access in the tech capital would be expected.

The rooms at the Palo Alto Library are great but Liquidspace and the Library are not on the same page. Liquidspace allows booking for 1 person and more than 2hrs. The Library rules require at least 2 people and max 2 hours. I was denied from using the room and had to cancel a call.
