LOGAN – On April 18th, 1916 three men – George Thomas, W.R. Owen and H.E. Hatch – appeared before the Logan City Board of Commissioners with a petition to establish and maintain a public library.
The request was approved and now the Logan Library is celebrating its 100th birthday Monday April 18th.
Library Director Robert Shupe said activities are going on all day at the library and a special program will be held tonight starting at 6:30 p.m. Speakers will include Mayor Craig Petersen, State Senator Lyle Hillyard and other dignitaries.
“At the very end we are going to unveil a time capsule that we have been working on to commemorate the day and then help us look to the future as well,” Shupe said.
Shupe said the celebration comes at the same time the Logan City Council is talking about financing of a new Logan Library to replace the current structure.
