We need your photographs!

Community Archive Project

In Partnership with Montana History Portal

May 12, 5:30-7:00PM, featuring Jennifer Birnel

Library Community Room

From March 1st to May 1st, we will be accepting digitized versions of the photographs you took of Billings landmarks, events, and notable figures during the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s! Participants are limited to 10 submissions, so choose carefully! A large selection of these photos will then be displayed for all to see at the May 12 Friday Night Fun event. As a special guest, Jennifer Birnel, Director of the Montana History Portal, will deliver a presentation and take questions related to the MHP website and local history preservation from 5:30-6:30PM. This event is free and open to the public.

Submitted photographs must be digitized and meet all the requirements stated on our refdesk, delivered to the 2nd-floor Reference desk on a flash drive, or uploaded through the Creative Commons Agreement and Upload form. If you have photos that you would like to submit that are not digitized, you can set up an appointment to use our Memory Lab to digitize images.

Depending on the image quality of your photograph and the description detail you provide, your photo(s) may be chosen to be permanently included in the Billings Public Library’s Historic Photo Collection on the newly renovated Montana History Portal website (formerly Montana Memory Project). If you took the photo, you will be attributed!

For more information or assistance, please reach out via email to refdesk, lanningj, or call 406-657-8294.
