Program Partners

Burlington Public Library is pleased to partner with highly qualified presenters who want to share their expertise with the community. We invite local authors, instructors, and subject specialists to submit their program ideas for our consideration.

If you have a program idea you'd like us to consider, please download and complete the application form outlining your qualifications and a detailed program description. As a public institution, presentations must focus on providing information only and cannot promote a business or include any form of solicitation or sales. The Library fairly compensates presenters for their time. All programs offered at BPL are free for the public to attend. Please read BPL's Program & Partnership Policy for information all guest speakers need to know. Completed forms can be emailed to
