Montana Book Award

A new collection of Montana Book Award winners has been added to the Tony Veazey Montana Room. 


In 2001 the Friends of Missoula Public Library decided that Montana needed a book award in order to recognize literary and artistic excellence. Montana is home to a large number of astounding writers and honoring some of them each year brings attention to their work and their craft, attracts readers, and promotes great literature. With representation from all parts of the state, the Montana Book Award achieved immediate success.


For more information about the award, please visit the Montana Book Award website
