1000 Books before Kindergarten is a statewide program that will launch in September 2019. The concept is simple ... Read books daily to your newborn, infant and/or toddler with the goal of having read 1000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten. Watch for more details on this fun campaign on our Facebook page, here on our website and on your local television stations.
First Chapter Society
How early should you start reading to your child? As surprising as this sounds, you should start reading to your child the first day you bring your baby home from the hospital! Read to them early on in their life and read to them often.
The BPL Foundation's First Chapter Society draws awareness to the importance of reading to children. Help us put books in the hands of children and support reading programs for young parents. Igniting a passion for reading!!
Our sincere thanks to Yellowstone Valley Electric Coop and Operation Round Up! We were recently awarded funding for the Billings Public Library Bookmobile and the purchase of large print books for seniors, children's books and DVDs for families. We will also be able to purchase something new - VOX, which are children's books that talk.
Thank you for your support and generous donation, YVEC!!
