Lewistown Public Library
Built as a Carnegie Library in 1905, the Lewistown Public Library provides the most modern and up to date information access facility in the county. Located across from the Fergus County Courthouse on Main Street, the library has both the feeling of the old and the wonder of the new.
Two additions, one in 1960 and another in 1990 helped to keep the original limestone structure viable and up-to-date. The upstairs meeting room boasts of fine wood pillars and adornments of the early 1900s. The main library provides computer access to everyone, with free Wi-Fi, email access, and over 40,000 library items, including magazines and newspapers. The catalog features historical photographs taken of the area in the 1880s through the 1920s.
The mission of the Lewistown Public Library is to ensure that the people of Central Montana have the right and means to free and open access to ideas and information. Enjoy digital services such as the Montana Memory Project which provides access to digital collections and items relating to Montana’s cultural heritage and government. Access is free and open through the Internet. Many of these items are digitized copies of historic material, some items are contemporary. All serve as a resource for education, business, pleasure, and lifelong learning.
