Want to get your hands on more than 3 books per week? You’re in luck! The library will offer curbside pickup starting Monday, May 11.

Simply place the items you want to borrow on hold (up to 20 items per card, through our online catalog or by calling the library). You’ll be notified that they’re ready for you to pick up (either via email, text, or phone call). Then simply stop by the library between 10am – 12pm or 2 – 6pm Monday through Friday. Call the library (406-388-4346) when you arrive and staff will bring your items outside.

If you’d prefer to continue to receive your items through the mail that is an option. Please call the library to let us know your preference once you receive the notification that they’re available for pickup. There is still a 3 item/household/week limit on mailing holds.

The book drop will be open Monday at 8:30am through Friday at 5:30pm. It will be closed over the weekends (including Memorial Day, May 25). We will only be accepting returns of Belgrade items. (Note: The item will say “Belgrade Community Library” above the barcode.) All items will be quarantined for three days, so they may still be listed on your account after you’ve returned them. If you have any questions please call us! Due dates will continue to be extended while the library is closed.

The library will be fully closed on May 25 in honor of Memorial Day.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. Wishing you good health. We hope to see you at the library as soon as it is determined to be safe for our community.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 Belgrade Community Library will be closed to the public until further notice, pending evaluation by the Board of Trustees and City of Belgrade administration. Please check our website at www.belgradelibrary.org/bcl-covid-19/ for the most up-to-date information on open hours and available services. Reference services are available Monday through Friday from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm via the library email address bcl@belgradelibrary.org and phone number (406)388-4346.

You may place holds for 3 items per week per household and those items will be mailed to you. If you’d like to make a donation to offset the cost of mailing these items, please remember us when we reopen. Due dates have been extended until after the library reopens so no fines will be accrued during this time. The outside bookdrop is no longer available, please keep your items at home until we reopen. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Wishing you good health. We hope to see you at the library as soon as it is determined to be safe for our community.

[expand title=”Click here for the coronavirus update: 3/17/20″ tag=”h3″]

Belgrade Community Library board of trustees and library director, in consultation with the City of Belgrade, have decided that it is in the best interest of our community if we close our doors, effective at 3:00 PM today (3/17). We will be closed for the foreseeable future to combat the spread of COVID-19. More information will be available as soon as possible on our website, www.belgradelibrary.org, and on our Facebook page. Thank you for your patience.  

The book drop will remain open, but we will only be accepting returns of Belgrade items. (Note: The item will say “Belgrade Community Library” above the barcode.) We will be extending due dates, so no fines will be accrued during this time. 

Please do not drop off donations, as they will not be accepted at this time. 

You may call us at (406)388-4346, or email us at bcl@belgradelibrary.org. Library staff will get back to you as soon as we can, between the hours of 10:00am-12:00pm and 4:00pm-6:00pm, Monday through Friday.
