The Black Heritage Foundation and Billings Public Library present a film series featuring Sidney Poitier. THEY CALL ME MISTER TIBBS! features Poitier in a role he originated in the film IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT. When a prostitute is murdered in San Francisco's ritzy Nob Hill district, an anonymous tip implicates minister and political crusader Reverend Logan Sharpe (Landau). Lt. Virgil Tibbs (Poitier), who has known Sharpe for many years, asks to be assigned to the case in hopes of clearing his friend's name. So begins the detective's journey through a twisted maze of baffling evidence, frantic chases, deadly gunfire and bad alibis. Before long, Tibbs finds himself bitterly torn between his duty as a cop...and his loyalty to a friend.

The TECH Lab is the library's teens only digital learning lab. Come to the lab to learn about 3D printing, use our audiobooth to record and mix music, build and program some robots, and much more! Teens can also come to hang out and be social, as we have lots of board games and gaming consoles. Plus, it's all free!

The Teen Education and Creation Hub (TECH Lab) at Billings Public Library is starting its own teen art club! The club will be led by Damin, a TECH Lab mentor and life-long, self taught artist. Members of this fall's art group will learn essential drawing fundamentals such as the human figure, perspective, and composition. These methods will allow teens to more easily draw what they see or bring to life the places and characters of their imagination. This program will be very adaptive to participants' interests. Among the areas we might explore are: character, creature, and vehicle design; portraits; and/or symbolism and visual communication.
