These guidelines are intended to govern the use of the building, grounds, and equipment (facilities) of TDLC. Request for use of the facilities for a one-time event or on a regularly scheduled basis, must be made by filling out a Facilities Use Form, which will then be reviewed for approval.
Review the following guidelines, complete the attached Facility Use Form and press submit. We require that you submit the Facility Use Form at least two weeks in advance of the date of intended use. You may not arrive before 8:00 AM, stay past 8:00 pm, and we will not approve any request to use our space during the weekend. The contact person listed on the application will be notified whether or not approval is given within three days.
It will be the responsibility of the Contact Person listed on the Building Use Form to:
Our building is now equipped with a magnetic lock system that requires the use of a key fob to open the door from the outside. From the inside, the door can be opened by a remote control or by physically opening the door. Please keep this in mind, especially for events after 6pm, as YOU WILL NEED TO ASSIGN A DOOR PERSON TO RESPOND to members of your group coming to the building. During business hours (10am to 6pm), there is typically a TDLC staff person at the front desk that can open the door.
*Ringing the bell will make a sound that can be heard down the hall, but not throughout the entire building.
A DONATION IS NOT REQUIRED TO USE OUR SPACE. Thomas Dunn Learning Center is primarily a nonprofit community education center, with our own programs and a small staff. As a secondary service, we allow other organizations to use our space when it is available. We understand that all nonprofits are not funded equally and leave it to your discretion to donate what your budget allows. When determining your organization's donation, please keep in mind that the average overhead cost for an hour in our building is $214. Thank you.
We have read the rules outlined in the Facilities Use Guidelines. By submitting this form we agree to the set rules and guidelines and any specialized guidelines. We will share these guidelines, at least verbally, with all in attendance. We accept responsibility for our activities and any damages that might be incurred.
