New Program or Service Collaboration

The Transylvania County Library provides programs that align with our strategic goals and community interests. We welcome proposals for collaborative programs.  For consideration,  submit the form by the deadlines outlined below.  The programming team reviews all proposals and will respond as soon as possible.  

If you have ideas or general program suggestions that you want us to know about, but are not looking to help implement, please use the Program Suggestion Form instead. 

Collaborations should directly relate to the Library’s mission of learning, gathering, growing – together by fitting at least one, but preferably multiple Library goals:

  •  learn
    • Create opportunities so that every child is ready to read and succeed
    • Encourage and nurture exploration, reading and learning throughout life
  • connect
    • Provide opportunities for Transylvanians to engage with each other in meaningful ways
    • Collaborate to enhance community well-being and civic life
  • belong
    • Extend library programs and services to all of Transylvania County
    • Create friendly, accessible and inclusive spaces and services


Proposed Program Dates                                 Proposal Submission Deadline

Spring (March 26 – May 31)                                          September 10

Summer (June 1 – August 31)                                     December 10

Planning for library programs begins six to nine months before a program occurs. Not every proposal we receive can translate into a program/service, but we will retain the information for future reference.

Library programs are not an opportunity to promote a business, product, or service. 

Our considerations include:

  • Does a similar program/service already exist in the community? How is this proposal different/fulfilling a need?
  • What community partners/organizations/volunteers could help with implementation of the program and how?
  • Is a beta test needed for this program/service? What is the ideal timeframe?
  • What is the anticipated cost of the program/service, both in start-up and continuation? What is the funding source?
  • What is the expected program attendance or service usage in numbers? How many patrons will be served?

Collaboration Proposal Form

The Programming Team reviews program/service proposals monthly.
