Resources for Public Libraries

Library Programming


Whether for seniors, adults, teens, or children, library programming brings people together for learning and fun. Programs also highlight the library’s centrality to our communities: they are often the only public spaces where people from all walks of life can meet, exchange ideas, and discover new things with their peers. These materials are available from APLS and will help you plan library programs.

Please note that this guide is not intended to be exhaustive and will be updated periodically as new resources are acquired or become available. Users of this guide are encouraged to make suggestions for additions and changes by contacting APLS' reference team using the contact form located here or by using the contact information in the sidebar on this LibGuide's Home tab.
