Thank you for your interest in presenting a program at Omaha Public Library (OPL). OPL welcomes program proposals from the public, qualified speakers, authors and performers. Your proposal will be reviewed by the library's programming committee. The programming committee evaluates each proposal based on how it supports the library's mission, the potential interest and benefit to library customers, the expertise and presentation skills of the speaker, and budgetary considerations.
OPL welcomes partnerships with the local business community, health providers, educators, community organizations, community leaders, authors and performers. You will be contacted if the programming committee is interested in pursuing your topic. The planning cycle begins as early as a year prior to the date of the program. It is, therefore, not unusual for the library to contact a speaker a year after the initial receipt of a proposal.
