Many other resources are available online with your library card. Explore our digital magazines with RBDigital; learn a foreign language with Mango Languages or a new skill with Universal Class, download free songs at Freegal Music, and have fun with our other databases and downloads.

I hope that when you visit your Library you will also take some time to visit the Stompin' Grounds Café and enjoy a cold or hot beverage and a snack while also experiencing the many services provided to you.  The Café is open during library open hours.

The Billings Public Library has designated 2019 as the "Year of Multicultural 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!
