Our Library is an Opportunity Engine

Montanans agree that the books and resources available at public libraries play an important role in giving everyone a chance to succeed.

Government and healthcare increasingly require people to submit essential forms online. Likewise, most businesses only accept online job applications. Often these forms cannot be obtained in print and traditional mail or appointments for in-person help may increase wait times that can be unmanageable for some without access to the internet.

Over the summer, children need to stay engaged to continue learning and be prepared for the return to school in the fall. Ebooks or online learning apps supplement other summer activities, but purchasing or subscribing to the resources can be expensive and prohibitive when there is the additional burden of increased childcare costs over the summer.

The Great Falls Public Library provides access to these resources to anyone in the community who needs them. Whether applying for a job, filling out essential forms, or providing summer learning, many GF residents depend on the Library to deal with these important aspects of our lives.

There will be an important ballot measure on the June 6, 2023 special election ballot. Our library provides access to reading and resources that improve the quality of life for everyone, and are an important advocate for everyone’s right to read and think. Join thousands of your neighbors and Vote YES for the Great Falls Public Library!
