The book drop is now open 24/7 to accept returned materials. We quarantine all returned items for one week before checking them in and returning them to the shelves or processing holds. Please do not worry if returned items are not taken off your account right away, as we backdate check-in by one week to account for the quarantine time.

We are limiting the number of patrons in the building at one time, please take a patron tag at the white table as you walk in the building. Patrons age 5 and over are required to wear a mask while in the building. Please utilize the curbside service if you are unable to wear a mask. Donations of materials (books, magazines, etc) are not being accepted right now. Thank you for understanding.

Homebound but still want your library materials? We can mail up to two items per week to you if you are self-isolating, quarantining, or otherwise unable to get to the library. If you’re interested in using this service please call us at 406-388-4346 to get everything started. You’ll need a Belgrade Library card, a mailing address in Gallatin County, and less than $10 in library fines.

Recorded events, like previous OLLI @ MSU presentations and “Backyard Breaks” for kids, are available on the library’s YouTube channel. Open YouTube and search for “Belgrade Community Library” to see what’s available.
