Will you fight for our cause?   
The Neighborhood Preservation Center is non-advocacy and therefore does not participate in specific advocacy efforts; however, we have an online resource database that provides links to numerous groups that can be of assistance. Please go to the Resource Referral Service and search the site, or contact us and we will assist you in this search.

How many people can the meeting rooms hold?
It really depends on what you plan to do: organizational meeting, workshop, lecture. The two rooms combined have a 35-person limit. We strongly suggest visiting the Center to see the rooms.

Does the Center have office space available?
Currently all our workstations are filled but please see the Offices page and contact us about future availability or to inquire about our Virtual Offices.

Do I need an appointment to use the library?
