Children’s Festival of the Book
An annual event to engage, enlighten, and entertain a whole segment of readers, our community educators, and library patrons. Building on the success of the last two years, we’re planning another stellar Festival with authors, illustrators, and professionals in the field of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. The event is designed to bring books to life by meeting favorite authors and illustrators to hook kids (and adults) on reading as a life-long endeavor.

Christmas Stroll at the Library
The Library Foundation partners each year with the Downtown Bozeman Partnership to make the Christmas Stroll a true community, Main Street event. The Library anchors the east end of the activities, with two horse-drawn hay wagon rides taking participants from Soroptomist Park to the Library and back. Christmas Stroll buttons are a must!
