Thank you for your interest in South Colonie Facilities.
The District uses MasterLibrary, the online facility request system, for all facility requests. With this system, reservation requests can are submitted easily and will be handled more efficiently. Renters are able to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes and pay online.
A fee schedule for use of district facilities is approved by the South Colonie Board of Education annually.
Although the process of requesting/approval/management of facility use is now digital, what’s implemented on MaterLibrary, remains the same as dictated by the South Colonie Central School District board policies on facility use. The district’s administrative staff makes final decisions on all facility use requests.
All facility use requests are completed online. The first step needed to make an online facility use request is to create a user account. Be sure to complete all information fields and then click the submit button. If your registration was successful you will receive an e-mail confirmation.
The video and Quick Start Guide below will provide additional information.
Once your account is created you can start making facility reservations.
The video and Quick Start Guide below will further explain the reservation process.
