Be a Part of Billings' History with BPL's Community Archive Project

April 6, 2023

Billings Public Library Media Release

The clock is running down on Billings Public Library's call for the community's help in documenting our city's history. Specifically they are asking for digitized copies of photographs (that you took) of Billings landmarks, events, and notable figures between 1960-1999 for its Community Archive Project. Digitized photos from that timeframe may be submitted up to May 1, 2023. 

The goal is to provide the public an opportunity to add their photos to the Billings Public Library's Historic Photo Collection on the newly renovated Montana History Portal. Then, on May 12 at 5:30-7:30 p.m. in BPL's Community Room, MHP Director, Jennifer Birnel, will deliver a presentation on the updated website and speak on the importance of preserving local history. Many of the public's collected images will be on display for all to enjoy. The presentation is free and open to the public.
