Space Rentals

The New York Society Library makes its second-floor main reading room, the Members' Room, available for rental for literary events. These may be readings, lectures, book launch parties, literary awards presentations, or other celebrations of books and reading. The Library reserves the right to determine what is considered an acceptable literary event.

Rental events, including setup, may only be scheduled on available Monday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday evenings after the Library's 5:00 PM closing.

The Members' Room holds a maximum of 70 people.

The Library is not able to accommodate filming or photo shoots.

For full details and rental rates, contact Sayer Holliday, Head of Events, at sholliday@nysoclib.org or (212) 288-6900 x222.
