BILLINGS — (NOTE: This is a release from the Billings Public Library)

The Billings Public Library will continue to be closed to the public until at least Mach 8, 2021, citing COVID-19 spread fears as the main reason.

“To continue to help break the chain of transmission of COVID-19 within our community, the library will remain closed. On behalf of the Billings Public Library, I want to thank all of our patrons for doing their part to help keep themselves, their families, and neighbors healthy and safe during the pandemic. We will continue to strive to serve the community to the best of our abilities,” Library Director Gavin Woltjer said.

The library has been closed since early November.

During this time the library will continue offering curbside pickup. Curbside hours will not change, and will continue to be available Monday-Friday from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. In addition, the library offers a wide variety of online services and resources available 24/7 from its 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’s website and social media pages.

The library tentatively plans to open back to the public on Monday, March 8. For questions, please call the Library at 657-8292.
