          generally available to community groups you cannot disallow
          political activity in that meeting room.The courts have been
          clear that public libraries must allow political and religious
          use of their meeting rooms, since we establish a limited
          public forum when we makepublic meeting rooms available.
          But at MCL we do have a rule that prevents outside
          groupsusing our meetingroomsfrom collecting contact
          information or money from attendeesduring a public meeting or
