Evenings after 4 p.m. and weekend events require an additional $15 per hour fee for both members and nonmembers.

Our historic home  is available for rental for events with up to 90 guests standing, 50 guests seated on the main floor, or 15 guests in the library. Renter fees vary depending on the time, hours of use, and date of the function. Hourly fees apply to the additional time needed for set-up, tear-down, and clean-up. In order to reserve a date, the renter must sign a Rental Agreement and pay one half of the total payment (including a $400 damage deposit) at the time of the signing. Remaining total payment must be received no later than 60 days prior to the event date.

Two very important things to know: 
1 - We do not rent for weddings or wedding receptions. We do rent for showers, birthdays, retirement receptions, etc.
2 - If a person is renting to do a reading or book signing, The Writers Place does not provide any publicity for the event.
