Note that all programs must comply with the Library’s meeting room policies, which specify that a program must be open to the public, free of charge, and contain no advertising or solicitation.

Boise Residents Holding Events at the Main Library

Are you interested in holding classes or events at the Main Library to share your knowledge and passion with your fellow Boiseans? Contact the Main Library at 208-972-8255 to reserve a meeting space for your event and let us know if you’d like your event considered for inclusion on the Library’s Classes & Events calendar and for other promotion by the Library through that process.

Traveling Authors and Performers

Boise Public Library welcomes program proposals and recommendations from visiting authors and performers. Proposals are evaluated based on how the program supports the Library's mission (see below), the potential interest and benefit to Boiseans, the availability of meeting rooms, and the contribution to the Library’s overall schedule of events. If your proposal meets the above criteria, use the form below to submit a program proposal to Boise Public Library. We receive hundreds of suggestions for programs, so we're not able to respond to each submission. However, if we choose to take the next step with your proposed program, we'll be in touch.


The Boise Public Library improves community members' quality of life by supporting their efforts to enhance knowledge, realize creative potential, and share ideas and stories.
