The purpose of library programming is to support the library's mission to strengthen community and enrich lives by sparking imagination, creativity, engagement and learning. In addition, library programming is developed based on available staff and other resources.
The library partners with the community for programming and encourages multiple points of view in a neutral environment. We look for areas of common interest where both the community partner and the library bring value to the programming effort.
The library has the ability to contribute space, staffing, equipment and marketing to a partnership initiative. The library also has the ability to gather supplemental resources to support ongoing learning from the program and can create supportive bibliographies and library guides.
Partner organizations are not allowed to solicit funds, personal information, or promote commercial services. It is acceptable to make available promotional materials about the organization on a table at the back of the program.
The library frequently partners with community organizations to present programming consistent with the library's mission and core values.
