Last week, my dad’s hometown of Hobson, Montana celebrated its “100-Year Class Reunion.” Hobson is a bustling town (of just over 200 people!) in central Montana, and it has always had a special place in my heart!
My folks drove up for the festivities, and they made my day when they sent me some very special pictures:
Right there, as they walked in, was my book on display! I was thrilled because I am so honored to have a book with my name on the cover in the library of the tiny town where my grandmother was a schoolteacher!
The librarian of this amazing little library is my dad’s cousin (Kimberly Baumann) and when she contacted me to order a signed copy, I had no idea it would be finding such a wonderful home!
The Hobson Library is both vibrant and cozy at the same time; it is an absolute gem that is cherished by its community.
Hobson is proof that a town can get by without a stop light or a gas station–but every town sure needs a library!
Here are some pictures of this adorable library!
It even has a fireplace!
As Albert Einstein said, “The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.”
And in Hobson, it isn’t hard to find!
***Thanks so much Kim, and the Hobson Library, for making room on your shelves for The Spill!
