We have many requests for the use of our facility for special events.  The Library Arts Center’s spacious galleries are a wonderful backdrop for events such as annual meetings, parties, showers & other events.

Scheduling:  Call the Library Arts Center to find out more about the types of events our facility may accommodate.  The facility may not be rented out during gallery hours:  Tues.-Fri. 11am-4pm, Sat. 10am-2pm OR when the Arts Center is between exhibits.  Keep in mind that space availability largely depends on the nature of our exhibits.  For instance, if the gallery is filled with 3-D sculptures or other works of art, it would be difficult to accommodate a sit-down dinner.

Rental Fee:  A flat fee of $75.00, plus $10 for every hour of space use (including event set-up & clean-up)  A refundable security deposit of $100 is required at the time of booking.

Call the Arts Center at 603-863-3040 with questions, or to schedule your event.

See our Gallery Use by an Outside Party Policies & Procedures for rental guidelines and restrictions.


At this time, the Library Arts Center does NOT rent out its STUDIO space for use by outside parties. 

Another Option:  If the Library Arts Center is not available for use for your event at your desired time, we highly recommend the Sugar River Bank Community Room located in downtown Newport.  Find out more about this option HERE.
