A major priority for new Logan Municipal Council Chairman Jay Monson has been expansion of library service. Last year Logan City dropped the fee it charges on library cards for people living outside the city for a trial period. Cache County went along with subsidizing cards for those in the unincorporated area and it was decided to have a referendum on the ballot this November for a countywide library.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show last week, Monson said he’s pleased to say local residents are reading more books than ever before. Monson says he would like to meet with Cache County Council members soon to see if they still go along with the referendum idea.”I think by November, hopefully, we’ll have a clear idea of where we stand,” Monson said. “And if it’s not a good time to have it on there I guess we could wait another period of time. “I hope we can have it on the ballot so we can ask the people of the valley how they feel about it.”Meanwhile, Monson says he feels Logan City should work on inter-local agreements with other established libraries such as Smithfield, North Logan, Hyrum and the Bookmobile to help expand their access to library materials.
