Wagnalls Memorial Library Wedding Packages

Choose Your Perfect Setting in this Remarkable Historic Building

Wedding couples may choose from several unique settings at the Wagnalls Memorial Library to host their ceremony and reception. Our Outdoor Courtyard features stone laid walkways, a trellis and seasonal manicured gardens for small, intimate occasions. Larger outdoor ceremonies are often held on our Front Lawn with our Tudor-Gothic-style building serving as the perfect backdrop for a historic atmosphere.

Inside the Library, couples may be married in our Auditorium, which seats approximately 300. The Upper Loft level of the library is where wedding receptions are held as the space accommodates up to 120 guests with views overlooking our main entrance and courtyard areas.

If you have never visited Wagnalls Memorial Library, we invite you to come tour this distinctive property that’s the perfect destination for a fairytale wedding.
