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.

In response to the continued upward trend of daily positive COVID-19 cases in Yellowstone County, the Billings Public Library will continue to be closed to the public until 4 January 2021.

“The health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance. Keeping our doors shuttered to the public in order to stymie the potential transmission of this virus to each other is one of the ways the BPL continues to help our health partners as they battle this virus. We will
continue to strive to serve the community to the best of our abilities,” Library Director Gavin Woltjer 

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. The Bookmobile and Senior Outreach services will continue as usual. For curbside delivery instructions, online resources, remote program details, and up to date information, please visit the Billings Public Library web page and our social media pages.

The library tentatively plans to open back to the public on Monday, Jan. 4.
