Across 92 locations in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, The New York Public Library provides thousands of free, high-quality programs every year. Library programs meet a wide range of needs. They help to build skills and knowledge, nurture inquiring and creative minds, and allow communities to connect over common interests.
Our neighborhood libraries are deeply connected to their local communities through programming for children and adults. Most branch library programming is scheduled 4-6 months in advance and is designed to meet priorities around early literacy and adult learning and information needs.
Submit Your Proposal
Programs are selected for their quality, the expertise and experience of presenters/performers, and the overall fit with wider programming directions and community needs. Schedules are determined months in advance, and priorities will change depending on seasonal and other factors. Proposals are not accepted by phone, and due to the high number of proposals received, we can only respond to those where we see a programming opportunity.
