About this collection

Bozeman has always been a community of readers. The first effort to establish a library occurred in 1872 by the Young Men’s Association.  The Bozeman Free Library was founded in 1890. During those early years, the Library changed locations several times and it was not until January 19, 1904 that it had its first permanent home with the opening of the Carnegie Library located at 35 North Bozeman Avenue.  The Bozeman and Gallatin Valley Documents Collection includes materials from 1891-1944 pertaining to the Carnegie Library’s construction and furnishing, as well as governance documents including minutes of the board of directors meetings and reports from the head librarian to the city manager and commission. Also included are two donations by local authors given to the library during that period.
