Propose a Program

OC Public Libraries welcomes program suggestions that support our mission and enhance our services, collections and other resources.

Programs must be open to the public, free of charge to attendees, and free of commercial advertising or direct solicitation.

Please note that many presentations are done on a volunteer basis; some branch libraries have a small budget for honoraria provided through the generosity of the Friends of the Library.   All presenters are required to show proof of insurance and sometimes a Federal ID number.

Branch Libraries select their own programs.  If your program is appropriate for the branches and if you have a specific interest in branch programs your information will be forwarded to the appropriate librarian.  System wide programs are coordinated by the Programs Coordinator.

Proposals are chosen by OC Public Libraries staff according to the needs and interests of the community, the suitability of each library’s physical space, budget, and the program’s contribution to the library’s overall schedule of events.

You will be contacted if and when we can use your program idea.   Your proposal will be kept on file for 1 year after submission.  Submission does not guarantee acceptance.
