Offer a Program

We're Looking for Your Ideas and Experience

Would you like to present a free program at the McKinney Public Libraries? If so, please review the information below and fill out our easy online form. We will review your proposal and contact you if your program is of interest. 

A big part of our service is offering programs for patrons of all ages that align with the library's mission. We develop programs we know the public likes and wants to attend, and we look ahead to the future to offer programs on new topics. If you have a program that fits that description, we will be delighted to receive your proposal.

Scheduling and Publicity

We schedule programs as much as nine months ahead. Please be aware of timing and submit your proposal within that window. Information about your program may appear on the city's website, in the library's blog or on social media.
