Montana Library Human Impact Videos

Montana public libraries offer access to digital literacy training and technology, with helpful assistance from librarians. Montanans across the state are improving their lives, achieving their life-long learning goals, convening for community projects, and reconnecting with friends through public libraries.


The Montana State Library (MSL), with funding through the Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP), has launched a series of videos to tell these local stories of how public libraries impact people’s lives and their communities. These videos feature stories from patrons and community members, ranging from getting assistance with social media to promote a new business - to helping parents compliment homeschooling curricula with technology workshops, learning games, and books.
