Located in the heart of New York City, the Library's Beaux-Arts landmark building offers both convenience and unique beauty.

The Library's landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, with its softly gleaming white marble and Beaux-Arts architecture, sits invitingly amid the jungle of glass, concrete, and asphalt that is Manhattan. With its majestic front steps watched over by the world-renowned Edward Clark Potter lion sculptures, Patience and Fortitude, the building is a quintessential New York City icon. Every year hundreds of clients seek us out 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.
