Library Programs

Are you looking to connect with others? Or maybe learn something new? Our virtual and in-person programs are a perfect way to do either or both! Most programs are online, so get comfortable and join us from home. Our virtual programs are a combination of pre-recorded and live programs (using Facebook, Zoom, Teams, or Roll20). Space may be limited for our live programs so make sure to register early to save your spot!

Registration

As we ease into in-person programming, we ask for your patience and that guidelines—such as pre-registration—are respected. To register for in-person programs, please contact the leading branch. To register for our virtual programs, please fill in this form before noon the day of the program. A confirmation email will be sent to you after registering. If you have not received an email confirmation within two business days of registering, please send a follow-up email or contact your local branch. And make sure to check your spam folder just in case the email ended up there instead of your inbox.
