The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community’s high quality of life.


Welcome to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation!

The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community's high quality of life through exceptional visitor experiences and innovative programs. An active and successful Library Foundation turns a good library into a great library. The Bozeman Public Library is a GREAT library, thanks to the support of Foundation donors.

Join us for all the fun FREE events Summer 2014 at the Library! From concerts on the Plaza to cooking demonstrations to a visit from Abe Lincoln, we have a little of everything for the whole family. All of the activities can be found on the Library calendar ( or call Sarah for more info at 582-2425.

If you want to "talk libraries" please don't hesitate to give me, Paula, a call. I like nothing more than to talk about books, programs, events for the community, and all the partnerships and collaborations that the Foundation is involved with, like Montana State University's Summer Read. One Book - One Bozeman is once again joining them in promoting a common book, "I Am Malala" by Malala Yousafzai. More can be found at I'd LOVE to talk with you!

Many opportunities and challenges lie ahead for public libraries. With the rapid pace of technological advances, no one can predict what changes will occur in coming years. What entity will be at the forefront of this change? Who will shape and lead our communities? We believe it will be our public libraries.

Only libraries can offer free services, materials, and expertise to the communities they serve, regardless of age, gender, enthnicity, or financial status. Join with us in our mission of keeping our Library relevant and ready to be at the forefront of the 21st Century. 

Again, contact Foundation Director Paula K. Beswick with any questions, suggestions, donations, or ideas on how to get involved at 406-582-2426 or
