If you’re looking for something FUN and EDUCATIONAL to do, keep the MSU Billings Library Lecture Series in mind! There are some fascinating FREE talks coming up, and best of all, they’re open to the public. All lectures will be held in Petro Theatre and there is free parking at the MSUB Parking Garage.

  Library Director, Darlene Hert, shared: “The MSU Billings Library is excited to offer the All About Montana Library Lecture series on Tuesdays throughout the month of October. The Library Lecture Series debuted in 2013. The lectures offer an opportunity for learning and social networking. The lectures have been very well received and attended by the University and greater Billings community. The All About Montana presenters will share their knowledge about Montana; specifically [this year] about ghost towns, paleontology, geology and Pictograph Cave State Park.”
