Located in downtown Billings, Montana, the Billings Public Library strives to be a place of exploration, education, and inclusiveness that provides entertainment, research resources, music, computer technology, digitization services, and educational opportunities for our community.

Library Director Gavin Woltjer joined Resounds in the studio to talk about the 5th year anniversary of the library and a preview of what he sees as the future for the institution.

The Billings Public Library is celebrating an important milestone, five years in a new building and as a resource for technology, information and economic development for the region for the 21st century.  

“There are so many things that libraries now do to help reinforce education, to help reinforce the economics of a community, to reinforce awareness,” said Gavin Woltjer, the library’s director. “ That’s how 

we remain relevant.”

This new facility not only serves the city of Billings but the entire Yellowstone County.
