Just as Logan City prepares to move forward with plans for a new library, the city is losing its library director. At Tuesday’s meeting of the Logan Municipal Council, Mayor Craig Petersen announced that Library Director Robert Shupe has resigned, with his resignation effective immediately. Petersen said he was saddened to learn Shupe is leaving.
“In his letter of resignation it reads in part, ‘I wish to emphatically state that I have enjoyed my time working and serving as director of the Logan Library and have been most excited about the recent progress towards a new library building for Logan,’ and that’s true,” said the mayor. “Robert has been an extremely strong supporter of that. We will begin the search immediately for a new library director.”
Meanwhile, Petersen said twelve proposals have been received for architectural services to design the new library/community center. The Library Steering Committee has recommended five firms to be interviewed as part of the decision-making process.
