Space to Thrive, by the Community, for the Community

- KCH Mission Statement

Pikes Peak Library District is pleased to announce the official opening of the Knights of Columbus Hall (KCH), beginning on March 9th.

KCH offers a large public space that can be utilized for anything from concerts and theater performances to business presentations and classes. KCH has three main spaces available for use.

  • MacLaren Hall is the centerpiece room of the building and can hold a maximum capacity of 195. There are ample tables and chairs available for use, as well as a PA system, stage, projector, laptop, and screen.
  • The Mezzanine overlooks MacLaren hall and has a capacity of 17 people. This space is perfect for business meetings, networking sessions, and creative collaboration.
  • The Lower Level Classroom has a capacity of 21 people. This space can serve as a classroom, presentation space, and meeting room for smaller groups.

The entrance to KCH is located in the Northwest corner of the Penrose Library Campus Parking lot.

El Paso Conservation District is now selling rain barrels to catch rainwater.We were wondering if you had any classes on water conservation that we could attend and give information out about our rain barrels. We would appreciate any help you could give us. The proceeds from this event go to our Education Program which supports scholarships for college age students, Camp Rocky, a conservation camp in Divide CO, and our local conservation poster contest that includes middle school students.

Hi, Pamela. We have passed your comment and the contact information for your organization along to our Programming Team, which sets up events and classes throughout the Library District. If they have something that would be a good fit, they will be in touch!

Take care,

Can the space be used for community group, but only for group members. Or would it have to be open to people outside your group also?

Thanks for your question Monica. At this time Knights of Columbus Hall is closed while we complete some safety and convenience improvements. We anticipate that the facility will open again in early 2019. Although we are still in the early stages of reviewing procedures for the use of Knights of Columbus Hall, I anticipate that the space will continue to be available for private events when it reopens in 2019. Please check with us early next year.

I was interested in finding out if the hall would be open for private events and who the contact would be. Our elementary school is looking for a location to have a meeting in April/May. Who would be the best person to contact to find out more information?

Hi Terry, Thank you for inquiring about the availability of Knights of Columbus Hall (KCH) for private events. We are just finishing up a construction project that will add a fire protection system and a new handicap accessible restroom to KCH. This project will increase capacity of the main hall to 195 people. We plan to reopen KCH early this summer. The focus of KCH will be community events, but we hope that there will be opportunities for private events as well.
