We are beginning a phased re-opening plan for the Library! Starting Friday, May 15th, we are starting to take returns. Returns will only be accepted on Fridays until further notice: see instructions. On Monday, May 18th we begin curbside pickups for holds. Please see instructions for how this process works. The Library will remain closed during this phase. We are following guidelines from the state, the County Health Department and the City of Bozeman for re-opening slowly and we look forward to seeing you sometime soon in the future.

Our lives have all been impacted by COVID-19. Here at the library, we are offering new virtual programming to enhance ours lives and remain together during these times of disconnect. We are also offering online versions of some of our book clubs- details and more on our book club page.

Mindful Mondays 

This 4-week online series will be led by local yoga and meditation instructor Turi Hetherington. Recordings will be posted weekly on Mondays on the BPL YouTube Channel. Listen at your leisure throughout the week as you flex those meditation muscles. Each session will focus on a specific component of the practice to welcome, witness, experience, observe, and reflect on sensations, feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and your innate wholeness, without judgement or needing to fix or change anything. No experience needed, just an open heart and open mind and healthy sense of curiosity. Click to learn more.
