Library Sponsored Programs

Programs that meet the Library's mission of providing balanced, lifelong learning opportunities to the public may qualify for Library sponsorship. In order to qualify, your program must be free, open to the public, and unaffiliated with advertising, sales, or fundraising that would benefit any individual or organization. Sponsorship decisions are made by the Library's Programming Committee, which meets regularly.

If you are interested in applying for sponsorship, please submit your request using the Library Space Reservation Form. Please note that the form must be filled out in its entirety. Requests received with any fields left blank will not be considered for sponsorship. No unsolicited calls/visits, please.
