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.

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.

I needed a quiet space to make a video of an interview. The video was being made for the clients of a non-profit that has no office nearby. I am retired and do not have a local office now. The conference room at the library was the perfect solution. It was extremely easy to reserve and it was free!

The rule is one group has a max. of two hours for using the room. But I was able to add 30 minutes then was told that my time had been modified back to two hours at the library. The system should be able to prevent users to add more time beyond the maximum limit.

I was responding about the experience of using your reservation system, not the library space itself, as unfortunately, our group's plans had to be changed at the last moment and we ended up not meeting there as planned.

Room is practical but I already used it a few times and every time the team had a different excuse for why the screen is not working... :( Don't count on this room if you need a screen.

Small room, in a convenient location. I came alone on the time I booked the room, to set up ten minutes prior to a conference call. My co-worker was supposed to show up a few minutes later. The librarian gave me a very hard time to get into the room before my co-workers showed up, since the room was booked for two. I literally had to beg her to get into the room.

This is the first time I used LiquidSpace to reserve a meeting room. Awesome service! The reservation was easy and smooth and I got reminders of my reservation as time came close. It was easy to check in and the meeting room was clean, well isolated and equipped (I only used WiFi). I highly recommend the service.

Really nice space. Ask the librarian to turn on the monitor for you if you need it -- they only have one remote and keep it behind the desk. Quiet and beautiful.

Conference room was clean, well equipped and convenient. There was a monitor available in case the user needed to hook it to a laptop.

The process was seamless and really fit my need. This is a great tool. I wish there were more free meeting rooms in Palo Alto - maybe you can increase your inventory somehow?
