Suggest a Program

Boise Public Library welcomes program proposals and recommendations from local community members, nonprofit organizations, authors, and performers. Proposals are evaluated based on how the program supports the Library's mission (see below), the potential interest and benefit to community members, the availability of meeting rooms, and the contribution to the Library’s overall schedule of events.

Our Mission: 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.

The Library focuses on arts, cultural, and humanities programs, and programs that encourage civic engagement and community discourse. The Library also hosts entertainment and community education programs. 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.

If you have an idea, and it 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.
