Programs of interest to adult residents of Redding are presented periodically at the library. The library's Programming Committee, a group of volunteers, coordinates these events. All programs are free; since space is limited, interested patrons are asked to register in advance. Information on a specific program is available at the library and on the website at least three weeks in advance of the event.

In addition, the Library offers two cultural program series funded by generous gifts from donors. The Hermes Arts Series, which provides programs related to a wide range of performing and visual arts, is made possible through the generosity of Helen Hermes and her late husband, Allan. The Korman Music Series, which honors the late Sinclair Korman, brings classical and popular musical performers to the Library.

The library also offers exhibits of artifacts created or collected by Redding residents. Exhibits are put on display at the beginning of each month and taken down at the end.

Please contact the director of the library, if you have a proposal for a program or an exhibit. If appropriate, the director will forward your proposal to the programming committee.
