Co-Sponsored Programs

Co-Sponsored Programs

The Library may partner or co-sponsor programs with other agencies, organizations, and businesses provided the programs are compatible with the Library's mission and vision. The Library will generate joint programming and invite partners to co-sponsor or collaborate. Co-sponsored programs must include involvement by library staff in the planning of program content. Professional performers and presenters who offer specialized or unique expertise may be hired for Library programs.

Library sponsorship of a program does not constitute or imply an endorsement of its policies, beliefs, or program by any library personnel or by the Tompkins County Public Library.

This program policy does not apply to:

  • events that are developed only for special purposes such as donor recognition, fund-raising, or media conferences 
  • programs offered by other organizations on library premises where space is rented under the terms and conditions of the room reservation guidelines.

Exceptions to the policy can be made by a majority vote of the Board of Trustees.
