The time the Renter may need access to the facility to decorate, set up, etc., and to clean up after will be considered part of the Rental Period.  The Boulder City Library is not responsible for the security of any decorations, furnishings, equipment, etc., left unattended on the premises.  The delivery and removal of equipment, chairs, tables, etc. is the responsibility of the Renter.

Equipment, decorations, furniture, etc., must be removed immediately after the event by the client or their representative.   Clean up and removal of equipment which extends beyond the original rental period may be subject to additional fees.

Any items left behind will not be the responsibility of the Boulder City Library.
No confetti, glitter, fake flower petals, silly string, birdseed or similar items are allowed.  Real flower petals, ecologically safe rice, and other biodegradable items are allowed.  Clean up is necessary if amounts are noticeable.

Delivery and removal of portable restroom facilities and/or additional trash receptacles, if deemed necessary, are the sole responsibility of the renter.   These facilities may be placed only on the asphalt surface of the parking lot.

No dates will be held without a confirmed agreement and receipt of 50% of all fees.

Capacity not assigned for outdoor venues

Events shall end no later than 10:00 p.m.

Library events will be given priority in booking the Amphitheatre space.

Because parking is limited, participants for events should be encouraged to share rides.  Groups which require “close-in” parking for set-up will move vehicles ½ hour prior to the event to allow for adequate parking for participants/audience.

Sound Systems
Renters of the facility are reminded that the Library Grounds are largely surrounded by residential areas.
The Renter will be required to provide a sound system if needed.  All amplified sound must end no later than 10:00 p.m.

Lighting & Electrical
The Amphitheatre is equipped with standard stage lighting.  Access to the lighting may be arranged for evening events.
A Spotlight can be made available at an additional fee of $50.00.

The Amphitheatre is equipped with 2 electrical boxes which support 6 120 volt 20 amp circuits near the Front of the stage, and an additional box at the Back of the stage.  An additional electrical box can be made available at the top of the stairs, near the center-back of the Amphitheatre for a rental fee of $25.00 for the event.  A maximum of 6 items may be plugged-in to each electrical box.  If an electrical line is run to the stage, it must be properly secured so as to not cause a tripping hazard.

While a Library Representative will be available during the event, that person is, in no way, to be considered a Security Officer.  It is the responsibility of the renter to provide security for events as required by the City of Boulder City or the Boulder City Library.

Liability Insurance is not included with the rental of the facility.  Renters are required to provide Insurance for public events and other events required by the Boulder City Library, with the Boulder City Library listed as “Additionally Insured”.   A copy of the insurance Documents shall be provided to the Library no later than 15 days prior to the event.
