Propose a Program

The Wellesley Free Library welcomes program proposals from the public and gives priority to those that complement the library’s collections, services and mission. We also take into consideration the interests of the local community, the suitability of the library’s physical space and a program’s contribution to the library’s overall schedule of events.

Library programs are usually arranged 4 to 8 months in advance and must be open and free to the public. The library does not allow commercial advertising and direct solicitation. Business professionals giving information sessions do not receive an honorarium, but may provide a business card or contact information to audience members who request it.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please complete the application below. Your application will be forwarded to program planning staff for consideration and retained on file for future reference. If a staff member is interested in booking your program you will be contacted directly to discuss program dates, times and other details.


How does the process work?

Upon receiving your application, it will be made available to program planning staff for consideration. You will be contacted if a library staff member is interested in your program. You will only be contacted if a staff member is interested in your program.

What kind of professional references should I include?

Professional references may include, but are not limited to:
A WFL staff member you have worked with
A current or former client who is familiar with your work or presentation
A person who has worked with you or reviewed your presentation

Who can I contact if I have further questions?

Please send an email with your question(s) to
