New Billings Public Library building
See the construction timeline of our new Library building and read about how it evolved from concept to reality.
Billings Public Library was established in 1901, and was originally named for Parmly Billings, eldest son of Frederick Billings, the City’s founder and namesake. The Billings family donated the first library to the young town in memory of Parmly, the only family member to ever live in the City.
