History

Originally designed by D.B. Woodruff, The Library Ballroom was built in 1889 by the Macon Public Library and Historical Society to house the city’s first public library, and remained there until the 1920s. Known as the College Discotheque in the 1960s and 1970s, it housed The Allman Brothers first paid gig. After decades of inactivity, The Library Ballroom faced demolition in the 1990s, but Major renovations restored it to its prime splendor. In 2007, The Library Ballroom was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Perfection

    From start to finish this venue was our dream come true! Working with Kaylee and The Library Ballroom was so easy and not stressful! My wife and I loved everything about our special day! From booking to viewing to rehearsal dinner to day of, everything was perfect and everyone we came in contact with at the LB was professional and so sweet. We highly recommend this venue to any and everyone!

    Excellent choice for a wedding & reception venue!

    Kaylee was incredibly nice and helpful through the entire process of planning the wedding and reception and was there during the event itself to help us with any needs we might have had. The venue is clean, beautiful, and such a great choice for couples who want a location that is unique.
