Thank you for your interest in becoming a Salt Lake County Library Services presenter. As a promoter of lifelong learning, the County Library regularly seeks new, fun, informative and innovative programs for our communities.

The mission of Salt Lake County Library Services is to make a positive, transformative difference in the lives of the people and communities we serve. Presenters and programs that support this mission are a priority to us.

Basic Information

Presenters will be expected to share their programs at any of our 18 County Library locations throughout the calendar year. Demand and frequency of presentations may vary.

Application Criteria

All programs must be free to the public and open to all.

Areas of consideration include:

  • Topic
  • Presentation skills
  • Professionalism
  • Availability – including the flexibility to schedule programs during daytime, evenings, and Saturdays

  • Cost – presenter/program fee
The application process is online only and is open October 1-31 of each year.

 

NOTE: In accordance with Library policy, tutoring sessions, private music lessons or other private, social, and/or for-profit activities; the selling of products or services; and/or anyone compiling customer databases, do not qualify as Library presenters.

Selection Process

Applications are reviewed November of each year. Applicants who meet the outlined criteria will be invited to present their program, free of charge, at one of our branches in December. The presenter and program will be evaluated by staff and the public.
