Hello Jyri-Petteri Paloposki

Maybe amenity=coworking_space combined with operator:type=private_non_profit
fits for a place like that?

Best regards,

This is the one that seems most suitable from the current tags, but I'm
still a bit stuck on the idea that a community centre should also have
some communal functions. These course centres I'm referring to don't
really belong to the community, but basically just provide space for
rent for users, which are usually non-profit because of the low-end

When I look at the definition of a community centre in Wikipedia
the only one that matches IMO is the one about renting a space. Is it
thus really a community centre?
