Space Rental

Read/Write Library offers a unique, cozy, and welcoming event space that has hosted an incredible range of space rentals given our intimate size.

Space Rentals have included:

  • Meetings and Retreats
  • Weddings and Showers
  • Multi-Day Intensive Classes and Workshops
  • Film Location Office
  • Readings and Performances

Designed to be flexible, most of our furniture folds or can be moved out entirely to customize your experience. We can accommodate up to 30 with seating and 50 otherwise.

Our space is wheelchair accessible and offers two gender neutral restrooms. We are committed to creating safe and accessible spaces and will work to accommodate the needs of your group.

While Read/Write Library does not offer food and beverage packages, you are welcome to contract with your own caterer who may use our small kitchen, or encourage your guests to BYOB.

Fees are on a sliding scale depending on the length of the event, set up and take down, and the amount of revenue you intend to generate. All proceeds from our fees support the operations of Read/Write Library, a 501c3 nonprofit.
