Program Proposals

We welcome program proposals from authors, presenters and performers.

Planning for our programs takes place several months in advance. Deadlines for program proposals are as follows:

  • July 31 (for December-February programming)
  • October 31 (for March-May programming)
  • December 31 (for June-August programming)
  • April 30 (September-November programming)

Completing this form is not a guarantee your program will be selected. Please refer to the FAQs below. To see what we are currently offering, view our program and events calendar.

  1. How are programs selected?
    Programs are first vetted by a program coordinator and reviewed by a programming committee.
  2. What are your criteria for selection?
    We consider community interest, presenter quality and reputation, budget, association with a community partnership, and whether the program is a fit with GVPL’s Strategic Plan.
  3. I’ve forgotten what suggestions I submitted. Can I find out what I have already suggested?
    Due to the volume of suggestions, we are not able to provide a record of your previous suggestions. Please keep a copy of your suggestions.
