Jacksonville Public Library - Downtown is an elegant event space in Jacksonville, Florida, that offers modern amenities and a friendly staff. Whether you need an event space that’s more fluid or one with fixed seating, you’re sure to find something to your liking here.

Facilities and Capacity

With eight event spaces, you choose what suits your needs; if that means that you need a spot to host 500 people, the Jacksonville Public Library - Downtown has you covered. With a total of 20,000 square feet, there are both indoor and uncovered outdoor settings to host your one-of-a-kind celebration. The Atrium is a perfect pick, as it offers various meeting rooms, courtyards and other appropriate settings for celebrations. There also are storage and dressing rooms available for booking, to make things easy for you and your-spouse-to be. The state-of-the-art conference rooms host smaller groups, making them great for occasions like an engagement party or bridal shower (which likely would draw smaller crowds when compared to your wedding reception).

Services Offered

Detail-oriented planners at Jacksonville Public Library - Downtown will coordinate elements for engagement parties, bridal showers as well as wedding ceremonies and receptions. There are four wedding-focused packages, each hitting a different price point and offering something more at the higher tiers (for example, the Emerald package covers event space, dressing and storage rooms, and an LED uplighting service). Some of their services include:

  • Lighting/sound
  • Cleanup
  • Setup
  • Liability insurance
  • Bridal suite

Cuisine

Jacksonville Public Library - Downtown permits clients to have alcohol at their private events, but it’s to be served in designated areas only. Happy couples may drop off food and alcohol within a set timeframe leading up to the big day.

Location

The Jacksonville Public Library - Downtown staff knows you want to have a great time, but they do ask that you please refrain from decorations that are not free-standing (and not approved); prohibited items include rose petals, confetti, open flames, items with metallic glitter and bubble, fog or smoke machines. The venue offers parking and is a wheelchair-accessible location.

    Saving The Day!!

    My initial venue closed due to Covid, which caused me to be in a rush to find a venue. I’m truly happy that I had my wedding here, it was dream venue!! I had my senior prom here and was sold at how beautiful it was. The service of the staff was absolutely amazing in helping me from start to finish, any delay or issue was handled professionally and quickly!!! I would recommend 10/10 to any bride trying to find the perfect venue for the perfect day!!!

    The most PERFECT venue!

    First, the library is just gorgoeous! When you factor in the price of the venue, I was shocked. So many venues charge an arm and a leg for just the space and you have zero flexibility. Ashley was amazing and so helpful. She was flexible and prompt, every step along the way. We were certainly on a budget for our wedding and the freedom to use whichever vendors we like, most definitely helped with that. The entire planning and execution was extremely thorough, and I can't recommend them enough!
