Westmont has appointed alumna Mary Logue ’00 as new director of Westmont’s Voskuyl Library, where she has worked for the past 17 years. Logue, who earned a Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) from San José State University, has served multiple roles at the library, including technical services assistant, technical services director, and associate director. For several years, Logue was chair or vice chair of the Gold Coast Library Network, a consortia of academic and public libraries serving the Tri Counties. In 2008 she was the co-founder of the Central Coast Disaster Preparedness and Response Network, and she has taught several courses on book repair and disaster preparedness for libraries.
Logue served as interim director from 2016-2017, conscientiously guiding the library through sudden transitions and vacancies. “Mary has earned the appreciation of her colleagues with her integrity and wisdom,” says Provost Mark Sargent. “I admire her collaborative spirit and vision for enhancing the library’s contribution to the campus.”
In her free time, Mary plays goalkeeper for a soccer team, two roller hockey leagues and occasionally for ice hockey teams. She enjoys playing board games and reading authors such as Dickens, Hardy, Dostoyevsky and all 40 books in the Oz series.
