Community Program Partnerships

Richmond Public Library values the program partnerships we have with various groups and individuals to present quality community programming. Proposals are evaluated based on how the program supports the Library’s mission, and the potential interest and benefit to the community.

Richmond Public Library plans approximately 4 months in advance and we break up our calendar year into four quarters:

Q1 January – March
Q2 April – June
Q3 July – September
Q4 October – December

All partners are encouraged to already hold or to obtain a personal or institutional Richmond Public Library card.

Partnership requests are reviewed every 2 weeks by staff and everyone who submits a request will be contacted.
