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 Billings Public Library is open to the public. Hours of operation are from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The following services will be available during this time:
  • 60-minute visitation limit for all patron visits
  • Fourteen (14) public computers will be available for 60 minute sessions (cleaning protocols implemented); patrons may not renew computer sessions
  • Access will be granted to the Yellowstone Genealogy Forum Room; microfilm reader available 
  • Access to the Bookmobile for patrons
  • Interlibrary Loan available
  • Three new iPad reading stations for digital magazines available
  • Online programming only
  • Furniture will remain unavailable for patron use
  • Archives, Tech Lab, Study Rooms, Community Room, Genealogy Room, microfilm readers, and Yellowstone Board Room remain inaccessible for the public
  • Continuation of curbside services M-F; 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
  • Café reopened
  • Bookmobile, Homebound, and Senior Outreach services continue with current operational status
I’m cautiously optimistic with this move to Phase 2 of the BPL’s reopening plan. In the event that the virus spikes again in the County, BPL management will evaluate operational modalities and consult health officials as we have throughout the pandemic. 
If changes need to occur, we will do our best to communicate these changes with the public and our community partners as soon as possible.

Masks are mandated for all staff and public inside the library.
