After 25 year of the Books and Babies program at BPL, we are making some changes!
Based on a program called Mother Goose On The Loose, this new program will be more visual and more interactive. Please let us know what you think!
Books and Babies will still be called Books and Babies, and is continuing at its regular times: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 AM and 1:15 PM in the Large Community Room, and Saturdays at 10:15 AM in the children's room.
OBOB is generously sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation and the Friends of Bozeman Public Library. The OBOB committee includes staff members from Bozeman Public LIbrary, The Country Bookshelf, MSU Library and English Department, and Bozeman High School, and our 2020 community partners are The Extreme History Project, Bozeman Actors Theater, Wonderlust, MSU History Department, and Loretta Fine Art.
