The mission of the Billings Public Library Foundation is to raise vital funds to provide a margin of excellence for the Billings Public Library.
Vision and Purpose
The Billings Public Library Foundation is committed to ensure long-term financial health and growth of the Billings Public Library through private giving and our endowment. Through a public-private alliance, the Foundation's vision is to offer our community a library with the best resources and most innovative services and programming possible.
1000 Books before Kindergarten is a statewide program that launched in mid-October 2019. The concept is simple ... Read books daily to your infant and/or toddler and chart your progress with the goal of having read 1000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten.
During Giving Tuesday 2020 we were hoping to raise enough money to purchase 10 Mobile Hotspot devices and service. By having these devices that can be checked out through the Library, those community members who don't have internet capabilities available will be able to get FREE Wifi access! Thanks to the continued support of our generous donors, we met - and exceeded! - our goal. AND, an anonymous member of our community - with the help of book club friends - stepped up and helped us purchase Chromebooks for use with the hotspots. Your donation helped us "make the connection". Thanks!
