Community Readers

A Community of Readers as Big as the High Plains

The initial reading of nominated titles is completed with the assistance of our community readers, who provide the initial evaluation of the books. Readers are asked to read several books in a six-week period, and to provide their feedback about their reading experience.

If you are interested in becoming a community reader, please let us know. Due to the time constraints of this process, readers must reside in the Billings, MT area.

Community Readers will read and rate 3-5 books in a 6-week period during Spring 2018. To participate, please complete the form below.



    The Billings Public Library Board has established the High Plains Book Awards to recognize regional literary works which examine and reflect life on the High Plains, including the states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
