Library Directors - Past, Present and Future
clear

With the forthcoming retirement of Mr. Ronald Jenkins at the end of July, I have been asked to collect photographs of all the directors past and present. It has been an interesting project that has connected me with people everywhere from Ohio to California in search of photographs. There have been six directors of the library in the past 94 years since the library was established in July 1917.

A Walk Down Library Memory Lane
clear

The library recently acquired several unique images of the old library building, located at 90 North 100 East. They were taken in about 1980 by Jerry Anderson, retired associate librarian, and remind us what the building looked like as one approached and entered that building.


[Select Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3, Photo 4, Photo 5, Photo 6, Photo 7, Photo 8, and Photo 9 to see photographs taken in 1980 of the Logan Library.]

We send our thanks to Jerry Anderson for the wonderful photographs.

Jason, Special Collections Librarian

Logana Pool and Waterslide
clear

After a library visitor recently asked about the Logana facility, I learned a great bit about local entertainment history.

Logana Plunge was located at 415 West and 1400 North around five artisan wells, four of which were geothermally heated, 80 degree water. The first swimming hole on the site was constructed in the 1920's. Soon a roof was constructed over the pool, but this roof collapsed in the mid-1960's during a heavy snowfall.

Ken and Marie Lindquist bought the pool in 1970 from Blaine Spencer. They soon added a slide for little kids and baseball batting cages along with other improvements. The swimming pool was finally closed in 1992. It is reported that Logan City considered buying the facility, but decided instead to construct the Logan Aquatic Center which currently serves the citizens of Logan at 451 South 500 West.


[Select Photo 1, Photo 2, and Photo 3 to see photographs taken in 1988 of Logana Plunge.]

We send our thanks to the Lindquist family for much of this information and the photographs.

Jason, Special Collections Librarian
