Swan Valley Community Library Highlights

SWAN VALLEY - The Swan Valley Community Library has something for everyone. In addition to some of the latest novels, there is a large section dedicated to Montana and books by topic including hunting and angling.

An autographed title found on the Montana shelf is entitled “Skid Trails: Glory Days of Montana Logging” by Darris Flanagan. The book was purchased for the Swan Valley Library in memory of the late longtime resident Reuben Kauffman.

Titles that may appeal to hunters and anglers include: “Bow Hunting the Whitetail Deer” by Dean Conatser; “The Complete Book of Hunting” by Clyde Ormond and “The Gigantic Book of Fishing Stories” edited by Nick Lyons.

Books not in the library can be borrowed from one of the branch or partner libraries. The reader can make the request online or the librarian can order it.

The next Book Chat will be held Dec. 7. “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou is the topic of the chat. It is an autobiography written in 1969 in which Angelou goes from being a victim of racism with poor self-esteem to a strong individual who responds to racism with dignity and self-awareness. The book’s title comes from a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar where the caged bird is a symbol for the chained slave, a symbol Angelou uses in all her writings.

Copies of “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” are available for checkout at the Swan Valley Library.

Story Time for youngsters takes place Fridays at 11 a.m.

The Swan Valley Community Library is open Monday and Fridays, 10:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Wednesdays, 10:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
