Established in 1919, Rosebud County Library prides itself as being a major community partner in Forsyth and all of Rosebud and Treasure Counties. Our library is an ever-evolving modern, progressive library that offers a wide range of services that includes a large collection of both non-fiction and fiction books, an impressive assortment of Westerns, audio-books, periodicals, DVD’s and music CD’s. Computers are available to the public in both desktop and laptop options, you can borrow iPads and tablets for in-library use, and we offer free internet and WiFi. We are a site for testing, and proctor tests in both digital and paper form. Staff is available, by appointment, to assist patrons with their devices and downloading e-books and audio books or for more time consuming computer training. We offer monthly teen and senior citizens programming and a wide array of special programming and events including: speakers; art shows; book sales; movie showings; quilt shows; music performances; humanities programs; and Summer Reading Program for all ages. We proudly collaborate with area schools and volunteers from the community in both our weekly and our special programming.
