Can I book a program at the Library?

Yes! If you would like the Library to sponsor and coordinate your program, you can reach out to the Adult or Youth Librarians in charge of programs. Library sponsored programs are limited and book months in advance, but you can also use our meeting rooms and offer your own program.
