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.

A Message from the Library Director:

I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits. No doubt you have noticed many changes at your library since we reopened on July 1. Per the Governor's mandate, masks are mandatory for all over the age of five and must be worn at all times while in the building. (Masks must cover the mouth and nose.) We appreciate your help in keeping our building safe by following the three Ws: wear a mask; watch your distance; and wash your hands. Together we can overcome this virus. And remember, the library is designed as a "Grab-and-Go" stop so visits must be limited to 30 minutes. For further information about how the BPL is operating during COVID-19, please see the FAQ page.


The BPL strives to help families with their educational needs during this time. Please visit these resources for more information. If you are homeschooling children during this time, please visit this link.    


Use of public computers and public meeting and reading spaces still remain unavailable. 


Our temporary hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Curbside services are available Monday through Friday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.
