What is the benefit of logging libraries?

Hello,

My question is very open ended; basically, why were logging libraries created? For the sake of discussion I'd just like to talk about Java.

What magical things do logging libraries do, that a class with static file objects won't let us do?

Far as I can see, logging libraries are just another dependency in Maven that can cause a build to fail.

I'll admit I'm fairly inexperienced, so I might be missing something obvious... I would be grateful to learn their importance.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, it's not related to a project I'm working on now; those libraries usually failed for me in the past. And I just thought they were overkill.

But yes, I'll have to accept the argument for consistency.
