Astronaut Christina Koch recently returned to Earth after a 328-day mission in space. The Livingston resident made history with the longest space flight by a woman astronaut and the first all-female space walk. Koch’s contributions to science could be even more far-reaching.

Between 1901 and 1922, 17 libraries from Missoula to Miles City and Havre to Dillon were built in Montana. There’s a new book that takes us back to the turn of the 20th century, when the generosity of a Scottish immigrant and the vision of 17 Montana communities brought libraries to the far reaches of the state.

The seed money for these libraries in Montana and elsewhere across the U.S. came from one of the richest men of the late 19th and 20th century, Andrew Carnegie, who said that a “library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people.”
