Programs and Events

The Boston Public Library is seeking community program partnerships for both the Central Library in Copley Square and the twenty-four neighborhood branches that support our activities, collections, and Compass: Strategic Plan. Areas of particular interest include Social Justice, Racial Equity, Arts & Culture, Education, Immigration, and Civic Engagement.

The Boston Public Library is currently seeking program partnerships for Fiscal Year 2019, July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019.

Please fill out the survey if you are interested in partnering with the library. This survey should not be used for single programs or for programs that only need a venue, but for programs where an ongoing partnership is established for the year.
