Welcome to the Billings Public Library!

Located in beautiful downtown Billings, MT, the Library strives to be a place of exploration, education, and inclusiveness. The Billings Public Library prides itself on providing entertainment, research resources, music, computer technology, digitization services, and educational opportunities for our community.

We hope that when you visit your Library you will also take some time to visit the Sweet Café and enjoy a cold or hot beverage and a snack while also experiencing the many services provided to you. 

Prevent "summer slide" and have fun, too, by participating in our new Summer Reading Program entitled "Build a Better World."  People of all ages will enjoy reading, activities, events, and opportunities to share ideas with others. The program starts in May and culminates on July 22 with drawings for prizes.   
During the month of May, the Library will hold four Community Forums (May 4th and May 18th from 6:30-7:30 pm; May 9th and May 22nd from 12:00-1:00 pm) to gather input from the community regarding the Library’s development of a new strategic plan. Additionally, I invite you to partake in Coffee with the Director (May 1st 10:30-11:30 am and May 15th 10:30-11:30 am) for a chance to share your thoughts about the Library in a relaxed environment. I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

The Billings Public Library has designated 2017 as the year of Health and Medical Literacy. Throughout the course of the year, the Library, through various community partnerships, will provide programming, services, and educational opportunities for all residents of Yellowstone County. Please return to our website often for ongoing information on current offerings.
