Logan High School library needs more books


Students at Logan High School are required to spend 20 minutes a day reading books, magazine or other materials that they enjoy. It is called silent sustained reading.

But the school's new librarian said there are not enough recreational type books to offer students needing to check out materials.

This is Lynn Mahon's first year as a school librarian. She has a few decades under her belt as a teacher.

She said while there are plenty of books for research and writing papers there aren't enough books to offer students for fun.

She put out a call to her friends and even issued a plea on Facebook. Some books were donated and she said students were asking to check them out before she had time to put them on the shelves.

"If you can get a kid to read a book then they are going to find authors that they like or genres that they like and then their test scores will go up," Lynn Mahon said.

If you have age appropriate books in good condition that you would like to donate you can take them to Logan High School and leave them at the front office.
