Library services

The Belgrade Public Library is here to provide our community with a variety of services including book lending, free WiFi access, and computer assistance. Patrons are welcome to browse our collection, request materials through our inter-library loan service, and take part in our Spring and Summer programs.

The library is currently open for visitors, no appointment needed. Individuals who have been vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks. We do still ask that folks return their borrowed materials in our metal book return bin located outside in our parking lot. 

The Library also offers online resources, including a digital catalog and e-books, at
