The Montana Library Directory has information about academic, public, school, and special libraries in Montana. Information typically includes the library's address, hours, and contact information for staff members.
STATEWIDE LIBRARY RESOURCES DIVISION
The goal of the Statewide Library Resources Division of the Montana State Library is to expand resources and access, demonstrating innovative ways to advance libraries and librarianship, and fulfilling the information needs of all Montana’s citizens. In collaboration with Montana libraries and partners around the state, the Statewide Library Resources Division plans, develops, and implements programs, projects and pilots, and administers funds for new and improved library services throughout the state.
The Division includes Library Development and the Montana Talking Book Library. It receives funding each year from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant program administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a federal agency. These monies enable the State Library to fund the services and staff of the Talking Book Library and Library Development.
NETWORK ADVISORY COUNCIL
The Network Advisory Council (NAC) represents the interests of all types of Montana libraries and maintains the perspective of statewide geographical balance as it explores technology resources, assists with the official procurement process of those resources, reviews and evaluates the feasibility, design, and outcomes of statewide library projects; assists with statewide planning, and advises the State Librarian and the State Library Commission as appropriate.
TALKING BOOK LIBRARY
This service is for eligible Monana residents who are unable to use standard print materials due to visual, phyiscal, and/or reading disabilities. Because no story should ever go untold.
