Welcome to the Billings Public Library!

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

People & Perspectives
We’re initiating a new series highlighting community leaders in the fields of education, politics, society, media, business, medicine and culture. The first program features well-known author Russell Rowland. We will explore his perspective on the creative writing process, the state of the arts community in Billings, and so much more. Come to the library on Wednesday, Feb 21, at 7pm to meet this local author.

Friday Night Family Fun
Each Friday evening brings an event specifically geared for families.  Make sure to get to the Library on Friday night February 23rd at 6:30pm for our Snowman Party! You & the family can build a snowman, enjoy snacks, do a craft, and watch the movie "Frozen".

Caring for Keepsakes
Part of our Financial Literacy series of programs, this will be a recorded presentation on preserving and sharing a family legacy. Denise May Levenick offers practical preservation and storage tips for the most popular family treasures, from photographs to furniture, love letters to lockets. She is a writer, researcher, and speaker with a passion for preserving and sharing family treasures of all kinds. Thanks to Dorothy Long from DIL Appraisals for co-sponsoring this event. Be with us at 4pm on Wednesday, February 28th, and learn how to save your treasures.

I 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.  The Café is open Mon-Fri from 10am-2pm & 3pm-5pm.

The Billings Public Library has designated 2018 as the "Year of Financial 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.

The Library is many things to many people. It is our goal that every person who visits the Library leaves with a positive experience. A strong and popular library reflects well on the entire community.

Part of our ongoing improvement process involves reviewing feedback from you. We value your opinion of our Library and what we are doing to serve you. I appreciate the trust you place in the Library. If you have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me. If I can be of service to you in any way, please let me know.

We look forward to your visit!
