Summer hours through Labor Day weekend:

     Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri: 11am - 5pm;   Wed: 1pm - 7pm 

Per the Governor's directive, masks/face coverings are required to enter the library for all patrons, except children under 5 yrs.  If you prefer, you can place holds for materials on your account online or call us at (406) 284-3341, ext. 1 for assistance.  Our other protective measures include social distancing, cleaning high-traffic surfaces, and quarantine of materials that are returned for 72 hours.  After that time, they are returned to our shelves and any holds for these materials are filled. Thank you for your patience during this time.   


Thanks to all the kiddos who participated in our summer reading program!  For anyone who hasn't come to the library, you may redeem your prize by Aug.31st.  


Drawings for winners at our programs were given during the programs.  Congrats also to our year-end random drawing winners: Reece W., Laci K., Maggie P., Millie J., Anna D., Eloise P., Luke W., Ewan F., Colter J., Charlotte M., and Gracie L.  Great job everyone!




The libraries in Gallatin County have restored county holds.  Place holds on any eligible item throughout the county with your Manhattan Community Library card and have it delivered to us for pickup.  You will be notified when it arrives by the method you have put on your account (text, email, or call).
