I am a former student of AACC and also the program manager for  
Annapolis Apple Slice Mac Users Group as well. We looked into getting  
one of the auditoriums in CALT since the Severna Park library is  
closed now on sundays. You have to book at least two months in advance  
as well as pay a 200 dollar fee since it not a school club or  
organization. I also had tried to start a Linux User Group at the  
school but was only able to start a Network Security Club before I  
matriculated schools. I think it is kind of sad for the Annapolis  
Maryland area that we don't have the same kind of community halls like  
Virginia counties have. Not only for community club organizations but  
also for the fact you can't be active and come to town government  
meetings on the scale of inclusion like they do say in Fairfax in VA  
with their huge community meeting hall.
