Logan Library director announces retirement

After 30 years as Logan Library’s director, Ronald Jenkins has announced his retirement.A replacement has been chosen, accepted the position and is now undergoing background checks. The name of the replacement is expected to be announced Thursday, said Greg Cox, director of Human Resources for Logan City. Jenkins taught Spanish at Logan High School for two years before getting his master’s degree and beginning his library work. Before working at the Logan Library, he had seven years experience as a librarian and director at a different library.Working with people and being able to provide others with information and entertainment resources pulled Jenkins into a career in librarianship, but Jenkins said he has always liked libraries. “That’s what makes a library great – something new every day,” he said.With his newly found spare time, Jenkins said he wants to read, travel with his spouse and “lead a little quieter life.” Karen Clark has worked under Jenkins for 14 years. His passion about the library and progressive attitude have been an asset to the library, she said. “It will be a great loss when he retires. It will be happy and sad – happy for him but sad for us,” Clark said. The name of the new director will be released to the library employees before announced to the public. – rachel@cvdaily.com
