Description:

The Providence Public Library offers a magnificent event space, accessible through their historic Washington Street entrance. Built in 1878, the Library is a prime example of turn-of-the-century American architecture. It traces its architectural pedigree to the Sansovino’s Library in Venice and the Libraire de Ste. Genevieve in Paris, and still further back, the Italian palaces of the Renaissance period. Your wedding rental will include the Ship Room, the Grand Hall and its indoor sunken Courtyard, as well as a Newlywed Suite. In addition, you will have access to many gorgeous formal photography locations (including the book-stacks!) and a well-tuned Baby Grand Piano. These spaces are truly unique, and come complete with all of the necessary tables and chairs for the evening. Enjoy a spectacular wedding experience at Providence Public Library!

Venue notes

There is a venue fee, which is dependent on the season and day of the week. The Providence Public Library functions as a non-profit, meaning their rental fees are their way to keep the doors open to the public, and their programs running to serve the local community! Wedding rentals are based on a 5-hour reception, and there is an additional ceremony fee to extend the rental period to 6-hours. All food and beverage will be offered exclusively through Russell Morin Catering & Events. A day-of-coordinator will be included within your catering costs. Please reach out to providencepubliclibrary@morins.com for assistance.
