The Lumberton Public Library reserves the right to change or cancel reservations in the event of emergencies, special library programs, or if library property is not cared for properly. The person making the reservation is responsible for damages to the premises.

If a group cancels a meeting, the Librarian must be notified 24 hours in advance so that the room may be rescheduled. If no notification is given, the library will assume that the meeting plus all scheduled future meetings of that organization are cancelled.
