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. Monday - Friday 9:00am - 8:00pm, Saturday 9:00am - 5:00pm

The Billings Public Library is proud to present monthly author presentation events to our community. Join us for exciting, innovative authors as they discuss their works, host Q&A sessions, and sign books for program attendees. The BPL will be partnering with This House of Books for several of the events, and books by the authors will be available for purchase at most author presentations. 

Preserve your memories in the BPL Memory Lab! The BPL Memory Lab is available by appointment and can be used to convert many different types of media such as film negatives and cassette tapes to easy to play and store media such as jpg and mp4 files. Email refdesk@billingsmt.gov for more information or to reserve the room. This room is made available through the generous donation of the Friends of the Library.

Making Access Happen is a one of our core goals at BPL and there are several new resources that connect our community to information, entertainment and lifelong learning opportunities. Mobile Hotspots are available for check out and bring internet connectivity to residents in rural areas, and our Library Express Lockers allow patrons fit the library into their schedules, making it possible to pick up materials 24/7! We have eliminated late fees and related restrictions on computer use, and the library’s fantastic meeting spaces are more accessible than ever with a new online system that empowers patrons to reserve meeting and study rooms at their convenience!
