Collection Description

The Logan Library, Virginia Hanson Special Collections has an excellent collection of historical information related to Logan and 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.
