Every year hundreds of clients seek out the Library to provide the perfect venue for films, fashion shows, wedding receptions, and corporate events – each wanting to capture a piece of the greatest city in the world.
The magnificent space, catering to both intimate gatherings as well as lavish extravaganzas, will lend a sense of grandeur and distinction to any occasion.
While you and your guests enjoy the glorious setting, you will also become a contributor to one of the world’s great free institutions. All event fees help to support the Library’s indispensable collections, services, and programs.
This landmark building offers four classically elegant rooms for events. The rooms are decorated with marble arches, carved oak ceilings and paneling, and large murals.
The Celeste Bartos Forum features a 30-foot-high glass dome ceiling with classic Corinthian ornamentation. The Trustees Room features walnut paneling, a marble fireplace, and 17th-century tapestries.
Our venues beautifully blend form and function, combining rich design with modern amenities while keeping sustainability in mind. They serve as the ideal backdrop to meet your event needs and enhance your guest experience with stunning views, history, artwork and more.
If you are planning an event and are looking for a truly unique venue, consider hosting it at The New York Public Library. This New York landmark will make your event (from the private and personal to sumptuous and visual) stand out from all others.
