Sallie Logan’s Birthday
April 15


Happy Birthday to Sallie Logan, who was born on April 15, 1851. Many people know this day as tax day however, we can celebrate Sallie Logan’s life and give appreciation for her kindness. At the time of her death in 1936, Sallie Logan donated her home, land, and other items; including books, pictures, and furniture, to the City of Murphysboro. Due to her generosity, the Murphysboro Library was relocated and the Sallie Logan Public Library was formally established in 1938. Her home served as the library for more than 35 years, until the current building was opened in 1976. Stop by the library today to learn more about Sallie Logan and the history of Murphysboro.
