Many thanks to Phillips 66 for the generous grant to the library that created these STEAM crates.

The Community Crates Project is designed to bring more Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) to Yellowstone County youth.

We currently have the following crates available to check out from the TECH Lab: Coding, Robotics + LEGO Robotics, Engineering, Audio/Visual + Green Screen, General Science, health Science, Music, Visual Arts, and Astronomy. Individuals and organizations are now able to utilize these resources suitable for all ages! The Community Crates Project is made possible through a generous donation from Phillips 66.

If you are interested in learning more about this program, please email the librarian in the TECH Lab at

New Community Crates made possible by the Billings Community Foundation. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Billings Community Foundation, an innovative Community Foundation helping individual donors and charitable organizations meet the needs of the Greater Yellowstone Region of Montana.
