One Book Billings

Mission


The Billings Public Library One Book Billings program seeks to provide a forum for library patrons to read and discuss in small groups regional authors and/or literary works which examine and reflect life on the High Plains, especially Montana.
The One Book Billings program is sponsored by a grant from Bernard Rose through the Billings Public Library Foundation. Discussion groups come together five times a year (every other month from September to May) to discuss the same book.
