Kalispell is for book lovers
I left for my first Montana morning jog yesterday, and decided to try a nearby trail that runs along the road. Imagine my happiness as I ran past mules, horses, cows and acres of beautiful land. The air smelled great, and I was looking around and taking it all in. And then I saw it!
I am an avid reader, and love to spend some time enjoying a good story. I’ve only been in Kalispell, Montana for a few days and haven’t yet found the library. I just finished reading a book and knew I was going to have to hunt out a new one. So imagine my surprise as I ran down the road and saw a free roadside library!
After I ran back to the campground (no house yet!) I showered and then jumped in the car to drive back to the little library, take a photo, leave a book and get a book. Of course I had to get a Montana-themed book since that’s where I am now located. I’m looking forward to turning the pages of Balsamroot, a memoir by Mary Clearman Blew.
So my message for any like-minded Kalispell book-lovers… head on out to Helena Flats Road, right down the road from Helena Flats School. Bring a book you’re ready to get rid of, and pick up a new one! And if you get there soon, you might be able to figure out which book was mine. Maybe.
And if you know where any other roadside libraries are located, please let me know! You never know when that information might come in handy.
I am so happy to find out that Kalispell is for book-lovers!
