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.

The library building will be closed to the public effective Wednesday, Oct 14th through Monday, Nov 9th. During this time the library will continue offering curbside pickup. Curbside hours will not change, and will continue to be available Monday-Friday from 11am-5pm. In addition, the library offers a wide variety of online services and resources available 24/7 from our website, and the Bookmobile and Senior Outreach services will continue as usual.  

The library tentatively plans to open back to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 10. However, this date is subject to change in response to the developing COVID-19 situation in Yellowstone County. The health and safety of our community is of paramount concern and importance to everyone at Billings Public Library, and we hope you all understand and appreciate the measures we are taking to ensure the ongoing welfare of the citizens of Yellowstone County. We look forward to serving you to the best of our ability now and in the future.
