New Mendon History Book
clear

As I was recently sharing our collection of local history books with a patron of the library, she made me aware of a new history of Mendon and Petersboro. I then began to hunt for a copy of this book for our special collections.

Written by Rodney Sorensen, perhaps the finest historian of that corner of Cache Valley, the book is extremely well done. It's filled with wonderful history, including photographs and personal tidbits for various past residents of Mendon. The book is well written and crafted and should be a useful to researchers well into the future.

If you would like to see the book, come on into the Logan Library! The materials in the Virginia Hanson Special Collections are available for anyone to use here in the library, regardless of residency.

Brigham Young College Annuals
clear

The Logan Library Special Collections has begun collecting annuals for Brigham Young College: the Crimson which was in publication from 1904-1926. A short explanation of the history of this institution will place the publication in the context of local history.

Brigham Young College operated from 1877 to 1926. "At first a normal school primarily preparing elementary teachers (1877-1894), it then inaugurated college courses and for fifteen years granted bachelors' degrees (1894-1909). During its final period (1910-1926), the school operated as a high school and junior college." Although highly successful and educating over 40,000 students during the forty-nine years of its operation, the school succumbed to changes in the educational climate and the growth of public schools throughout Utah.(Garr)

The library has long been collecting Logan High School's Amphion and now has a collection only missing a few volumes. A natural extension of this collection is to collect the annual for it's near relative, Brigham Young College. The library has been acquiring the annuals through donation and online auctions.

Stories of the Logan Temple on CD
clear

Nolan P. Olsen was likely the finest historian of the Logan LDS Temple. For many years patrons of the Logan Library have enjoyed listening to a talk by Mr. Olsen on the Logan Temple. However, the recording was circulated on cassette and slowly became worn out over time.

Not long ago library staff tried to purchase new copies of this recording on compact disc but found that it had not been released in this format. We were able to track down members of Mr. Olsen's family and received permission to copy the recording onto compact disk.

We now have, as far we can tell, the only copies of this recording in a digital format. Check our catalog to find the recording and check it out to listen to it in your homes.
