One of my favorite things to do in a new place is visit their local library. You can tell a lot about a community by the state of its library. It’s a gathering place, a home of knowledge, a shelter, a conduit that offers the constant invitation to expand our world.
While you’re in Missoula, head over to the public library and allow yourself a day of rest and reading. As far as libraries go, Missoula’s is large. And more importantly, it’s filled with books I haven’t found anywhere else. Obscure authors, out of print books, and “out there” topics line the shelves. I even found one of my college professors’ (who lives in Korea) first book of poetry by accident one day. So go get educated!
