The Logan Library, Virginia Hanson Special Collections has an excellent collection of historical information related to [[Logan, Utah|Logan]] and [[Cache County, Utah|Cache County]], Utah. In 2006 the Everton Genealogy Collection was donated to the library. It was opened to the public for two years but was then closed in April 2008. The staff of the library have since been working to add a portion of this book collection to the Virginia Hanson Special Collections. In addition to the book collections, there is an expanding archival and digital collection relating primarily to the City of Logan.

==== Book and Film Numbers Used by the Family History Library  ====
+
 
+
The Family History Library has used different methods to number its growing collection of books and films since its start in 1894. Formerly used numbers are still found in old family records in the lists of sources for the data. These old numbers are no longer used so the current numbers for the books and films must be determined.<br>
+
 
+
