Premium Venues

Host your next event at one of Central Library's premium venues.

Booking a premium venue

Conveniently located in downtown Halifax, these architecturally stunning spaces can be booked:

  • For a variety of public and private functions, including after hours and paid events
  • Up to 6 months in advance, with some exceptions
  • For a minumum of 4 hours (rental fees vary and are charged by the hour)

Let us help you sort out the details. 

To discuss booking one of our premium venues, email us or call (902) 490-5768.

Things to keep in mind

  • There's no storage space on site. You'll need to bring everything with you just prior to the event and take it away by the end of your booking.
  • Don't forget to include time for set up and tear down in your booking time.
  • You'll need a Certificate of Insurance. We can help you determine the amount required when you book the space.
  • If you wish to serve alcohol, you'll need to get a Special Occasion Liquor License and provide us with a copy, and you'll have to abide by our Serving of Alcohol Policy.
  • Events need to comply with Halifax By-law N200 Respecting Noise.
  • If extra A/V support or equipment is required, we will refer you to our preferred AV supplier.
