The Friends of the Library are citizens who value the service of the North Logan City Library and volunteer to help in various ways. Friends work closely with the library staff and Board of Trustees and are kept informed of the library’s plans, progress, and challenges by the Library Director.
Individually and collectively, Friends use their influence to assist the library in obtaining desired financial support from the community or institution by representing the library point of view to local government, academic leadership, legislators and the media. Some events sponsored by the Friends to help raise funds include book sales, 24th of July breakfast at Elkridge Park, golf tournaments, etc. The Friends group also maintains the Book Nook, a separate room within the library whereby patrons may purchase used books for all ages at very reasonable costs.
To become a member of the Friends, send a check or money order for $5.00 to the North Logan City Library, 475 East 2500 North, North Logan, UT 84341. Dues entitles one to membership for one year, from January to December, of the calendar year in which the dues are received.
Donations have come from children’s nickels and dimes, family donations, local business grants, art organization grants, and from endowment funds over a ten-year period through The Friends of the North Logan Library organization.
Sculpted by Bryce Pettit, a Utah artist, the “Flights of Learning” has been commissioned by the North Logan City Library and represents the quest of learning through literature. The base was designed and built by Design West. The opportunity to purchase this inspiring, limited edition art piece is offered through the Friends of the North Logan City Library.
Flights of Learning, dedicated to all the citizens of North Logan City, represents the importance of our Library to bring great knowledge to the minds of readers. A child’s life epitomizes learning and it is because of children that we as parents and members of the community shoulder the responsibility to better the world. The open book is the gateway to learning and the birds are knowledge that once released soar to heights that enrich and enlighten lives. The birds also represent the freedom and opportunity gained through learning. Each bird represents a different area of learning. The owl is symbolic of the sciences and mathematics; the falcon, history; the jay, literature; the meadowlark, music; the hummingbird, fantasy; and the tern, the arts.
The Monument is a seven foot high, life sized sculpture creating a captivating scene that will draw young and old alike to the library setting.
MONTHLY MEETINGS FOR THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY ARE THE SECOND TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH.
