Our Library - Our Future: Summaries of Public Meetings

As part of the planning process for a new Logan Library we held a series of public meetings giving us the chance to explain the planning and building process and more importantly to gather input from the public.

Business and Community Leaders

On Thursday, January 17, 2008 we held a meeting with community and business leaders to kick off the process of gathering public input for the new library. Among those attending were Logan Mayor Randy Watts along with three former mayors, current and former city council members and library board members, county council members, representatives from USU and local public schools, and downtown business owners. After a brief introduction to the project from Mayor Watts and Library Director Ronald Jenkins, attendees had the chance to ask questions and voice their opinions about the new library.

Here are some of the ideas we received about the new library at this meeting:
