Studies have shown that children who are read aloud to have improved language skills and are more successful in school. During the program families will read together for 20 minutes a day for 20 days. Families completing the program will receive a book and be entered into a drawing for a special grand prize. A Circus Variety Show is scheduled for February 24th at 6:30 to celebrate the end of Family Reading.

Kevin Kooistra, Executive Director of the Western Heritage Center will present a history of the women’s suffrage and women’s rights movements. Topics include the story of suffragist Hazel Hunkins Hallinan of Billings who championed women and children’s rights, the history of the League of Women Voters, and various strategies used to create social change.
The event is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and commemorates the organization's 100th birthday. It is part of the Library's "2020: A Year of Civic Literacy" series. Light refreshments will be served.
Hazel Hunkins Hallinan, a Billings High School graduate in 1908, was a pivotal member of the National Woman’s Party and a campaigner for women’s suffrage. Her efforts resulted in several arrests, attacks in the press, and assaults by angry mobs.
Join the discussion!
The League of Women Voters will facilitate voter registration in the Library lobby from 10-11:30 a.m., prior to the presentation.

This is a great opportunity to see what the kits contain and get on the waiting list to check one out for yourself.
BPL COG Kits have been generously funded by grants from the Friends of the Billings Public Library and the Montana Geriatric Education Center.
