Swan Valley Community Library Highlights

Swan Valley - Participants in the Swan Valley Library summer reading program received a free book of their choice and an ice cream cone from Swan Valley Center. Readers filled in a log of the books they read during the summer. The logs are posted in the library. The program was open to readers of all ages.

A genealogy class is being offered this fall at the Swan Valley Library. It will be taught by a reference librarian from Missoula Public Library. There is a sign up sheet in the Swan Valley library. Those interested will be notified of when the class will take place.

The Swan Valley Library Book Chat will be discussing “That Churchill Woman” by Stephanie Barron on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. Copies of the book are available at the library.

It is the story of the British Prime Minister during World War II Winston Churchill’s mother Jennie Jerome. Jerome, wealthy, privileged and independent, was raised in New York and Paris.

At 19 she married the seventh Duke of Marlborough after knowing him three days. She was raised to think for herself and being careless of English society rules, Lady Randolph Churchill becomes a late Victorian era London sensation, making powerful friends and enemies. She aids in her husband’s rise in Parliament

A reviewer said about the historical fiction, “Breathing new life into Jennie’s legacy and the glittering world over which she reigned, the novel paints a portrait of the difficult - and sometimes impossible - balance among love, freedom and obligation, while capturing the spirit of an unforgettable woman, one who altered the course of history.”

The Swan Valley Library is located on Highway 83 in Condon and is just north and adjacent to the Swan Valley Community Hall. The library is open Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For more information call 754-2521.
