Library Programming

The Library provides a wide range of free programs and events that respond to community interests and needs. Our programs expand opportunities for learning, connection, entertainment, and growth.

The Library upholds the principle of intellectual freedom and supports the rights of individuals to read, speak, view and exchange differing points of view on any subject. To accomplish this, the Library may present controversial programs that provide public access to diverse perspectives on an issue.

In addition to our own events, we also partner with individuals and groups to offer programs and events.

If you are interested in offering a program, read on to learn more about our program guidelines, and next steps for partnering with the Library.

Guidelines for Library programs

  • Programs provided in partnership with the Library must be open to the public and free of charge.
  • Programs must be designed to provide information or an experience for the public without promoting a business, product, or commercial enterprise.
  • Fundraising is not permitted.
  • Programs are generally planned 4 months in advance of their delivery date.
  • Program selections should connect to the Library's strategic goals.

Offering a program

We encourage you to submit a request to offer a program in partnership with the Library. These submissions will be reviewed based on our programming guidelines, needs, and Library resources.

While we welcome all submissions, we are unable to partner to offer all of the programs pitched to us. Library staff will contact you if we are able to host your program.
