Welcome to the Billings Public Library's Summer Reading Program!


We have 4 programs designed for a specific age group- Pre-Readers, Kids, Teens and Adults.
Reading is the main focus, but the programs also include events, missions and games. Earn points for participating and watch your game board as you complete steps in the program. You will earn virtual badges, be part of random drawings and be able to "spend" point on prize raffles at the end of the program.
