SWAN VALLEY - Fern Kauffman is starting a new chapter after working for the Swan Valley Library for more than 30 years. Kauffman has seen many changes in her tenure. Her biggest joy has been her love of helping patrons find the information they were looking for, whether in a book or on the Internet.

The Swan Valley Library opened in 1979. The community built and maintained the building. They were the first branch library with Missoula County Public Library (MCPL).

"We are so far from everything else. Many in the community felt it was very important to have a library," said Kauffman.
