You certainly can. For example, you can impressively receive your guests in the Theatre, utilise the Lecture Room as a cloakroom, and host your reception or corporate event in yet another room. We are of course happy to arrange drinks, dinner or snacks for you!

For receptions for up to 60 people, the Gallery and Lecture Room are excellent choices. The Gallery exudes an informal atmosphere and doubles as a public space, where people can also browse our latest book collection. The Lecture Room is suitable for a more private event. And did you know you can also book our restaurants Noda and Mr Potter for your reception?

If you are looking to host a corporate event in Utrecht for up to 400 people, the Great Hall should be at the top of your list.

We can decorate the Great Hall in a variety of ways and, of course, take care of your meeting from A to Z. We’re sure your corporate event (or reception, for that matter) at Utrecht Library will be one to remember!

Very close! And also very accessible. Buses 2, 8, 28, 50, 55, 73, 74 or 77 stop at the Neude stop, which is almost on our doorstep. Plus, our beautiful library is only a 10-minute walk from Utrecht Central Station via Vredenburg and Potterstraat.
