 The Library is named for Dr. William M. Logan who was a Presbyterian minister and Chair of the Board of Trustees from 1955-1972.

Ordained in 1935 after receiving his Masters in Divinity from the Austin Seminary, Dr. Logan came to Kerrville in 1950 where he was a pastor at the First Presbyterian Church.  He took on leadership roles in local organizations including Schreiner Institute where he was a Board of Trustee member and also helped found the Mo Ranch Presbyterian Retreat. He later served as a pastor in San Antonio, Austin, and Brownwood. Dr. Logan kept careful records of his sermons, and thus  left his records to the library before passing in 1999.  His portrait (see image right) hangs in the main part of the Library.  The William M. Logan Collection is available for research by appointment.

Logan Library's current 34,000 square feet began with an original building of 7,000 square feet. Designed by Ford, Powell and Carson, Inc. of San Antonio, the $5.5 million expansion was completed in 1985 by wrapping new construction completely around the original library.

Today, Logan Library houses over 83,000 volumes and provides Internet access from 40 workstations. Students find quiet contemplation in private study rooms and classes often take advantage of two multimedia machines as well as the 20 computer workstations in the Sun Porch Electronic Classroom. Prior to 1967, the Library was housed in the Tom Murray Building, built in 1940.

The Grand Hall was completed in 1992 with funds provided by the Fish Foundation. The tapestry hanging in the Hall is 5 by 15 feet and was created by Becky Patterson. Based on Psalm 8, it offers Hill Country representations of Adam, Eve, and the Peaceable Kingdom.
