Program Proposals

Please read prior to submitting a program proposal. If you are interested in presenting a program at the library, please review the library’s Programming Policy. Programs are scheduled 4-6 months in advance. Staff will contact you if the program meets our guidelines and fits into our schedule and budget. Due to the number of program proposals we receive, we are unable to respond individually to submissions.
