Co-Sponsored Program Application

  • A request for a program should be received 2 months in advance. We may make exceptions on a case by case basis as staff time and room availability allow.
  • We reserve the right to conduct a background check on anyone who provides programs for children, ages 18 and under.
  • Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are not able to accept every applicant. We will contact you if we are able to accommodate your program.
  • Because of limited financial resources, our pay scale and ability to pay presenters varies. TCPL looks at other factors such as topic, potential audience, program space, etc. when negotiating fees.
