Beautiful, Unique Venue

Our wedding reception at the Stillwater Public Library was beautiful, and we were so happy to be able to hold our event there. We worked with Anne throughout the planning process and she was very helpful. The rooftop terrace is beautiful and unique, and our guests loved the space and the amazing view of Stillwater and the St. Croix River. Luckily for us, the weather that day was perfect, but there is an indoor space that is available in case of rain. We also had a portion of the terrace rooftop covered with a tent, which is a great option for sunny and/or windy days. We would definitely recommend checking out the Stillwater Public Library!

Amazing Location!

We absolutely LOVED having our wedding reception at the Stillwater Library! Working with Anne was so great and she made the process easy and fun. The venue is so beautiful and we received so many great comments from our guests about the location. It was a truly wonderful day and this location is top-notch!

The View is worth the price!!

We held our ceremony at the library, on the rooftop. We knew the view would be great, but when I walked down the aisle and saw the set up and that view, I was in total awe. It was fantastic!! We paid a healthy chunk of change to rent the library, but the view on our big day was priceless!! The library has nice white chairs that they set up, and a pergula on the roof, which was great for photos. The coordinator at the library, Anne, was very nice and helpful. She answered all of our questions and handled all of the vendors the day of the event so we were able to relax. The drawback of the library is the cost. The rental fee itself was a bit steep. There was a charge per chair for set up, but it did include the use of an indoor room in case of bad weather...however, if we had actually had to use the room there would have been a small fee to set up the chairs in that room as well. We did have the use of a meeting room for all of the bridal party to use, which was great. The library also has a coffee shop on the third floor, which was awesome. We met with the owner, and decided to rent the coffee shop for an hour before and after the wedding so our guests could purchase drinks, etc. That was great! Obviously outdoor receptions are seasonal in MN, but if considering a spring, summer, or fall wedding, I would definitely recommend the Stillwater Library!

We had our June wedding here and received so many compliments on the venue! After getting past the music over by 10pm issue and decided to just conduct the dance indoors, we had a blast. The flow was easy, it was great to have our guests stay in Stillwater and experience the quaint town, and Anne was so great to work with! You'll pay extra for the tables and chairs, but it was convenient. You slso need to decide whether to add a tent (recommend Omega Tents) which adds extra cost, but I highly recommend this location!

Hidden Gem - Outdoor Wedding Venue

Reviewed on 11/07/2011 Lindsay B

We came across the Stillwater Public Library when we were actually in the city looking at another venue. Because they are a non-profit library they do very little advertising, so I call it our hidden gem. Anne the coordinator is great to work with and the view can't be beat. The flexibility to choose any licensed caterer was a huge decision point for us. Moving on to the cons: If you are looking to use the rooftop terrace for your dance, it's important to know that all music must be done by 10pm due to a noise ordinance in the city. They are also very concerned about the music volume. We were disappointed that this made for an early end to our big night. Also, be prepared for some outrageous tent prices. We were only able to find one rental company in the state that was willing to provide a tent at the venue, and because they have a monopoly on the service they charge and arm and a leg. Keep that in mind when you get excited about the low venue cost.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anne, the events coordinator, at the library. She was interested and engaged throughout the entire time we planned our wedding with the library. Additionally, she was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. The library was very cost effective, as it helped us remain within our budget of $7000.00.
