Happiness is having a library card! How to get one.
Billings Public Library is an educational space for learners from birth to high school and beyond. September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. We're joining with the American Library Association and libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all - a free library card.
Having a library card provides access to great things all year-round, but during Library Card Sign-up Month you will get the chance to win $100!
Snap a picture of yourself with your library card and post it to Instagram or Twitter using #GetLibraryCarded. You will be automatically entered in a drawing to win a $100 Visa gift card! Entries can also be submitted by posting as a comment or wall post on the I Love Libraries Facebook page. Remember to cover up any personally identifiable information on the card before posting your photo. And show your love for your library by adding #billingspubliclibrary!
The promotion begins Sunday, September 1 at noon CT and ends Sunday, September 22 at noon CT.
The #GetLibraryCarded Promotion is open to residents of the United States, Washington, D.C., and U.S. Territories. Employees of the American Library Association are not eligible to participate.
Library Art Walk on October 4th from 5-9pm
Billings Public Library is pleased to join the Downtown Billings Art Walk with an exhibit of the art of Joseph Henry Sharp. Out of public view for decades, six of his works will be on display. Also on display will be the Chief Plenty Coups life mask in partnership with the Western Heritage Center. For more information about Sharp and his work, see his biography on Wikipedia.
Check out the Library's YouTube Channel - helpful and interesting videos of all sorts.
See many other programs and activities on our web pages, at Events for Adults, or things for children to do on our Children's page, or just keep an eye on our events calendar. The library's web pages hold a wealth of information and activities for all ages.
Many 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.
