System Administrator: Leslie A. Wishard
Delivery/Bookkeeper: Beverly Klasel
We are the only two-county system in the state. The System Office and eleven libraries provide library service to a population of 57,444 (2020 Census) over 2219 square miles.
The System Board of Directors and staff are determined to find better ways to provide services to the underserved areas of our two counties. With eleven member libraries, we hope our citizens take advantage of the many materials and programs that may fill their needs.
As of spring 2018, all member libraries are now part of the PaILS/SPARK state-wide consortium. The Evergreen circulation software allows us to to see materials at all eleven libraries. It is our hope that by using the same software, it will help increase sharing of resources across the two counties, thus providing better services for our patrons.
The System administrator provides consulting and continuing education services to the local library directors and acts as a liaison between the directors and the North Central Library District (NCLD) and Office of Commonwealth Libraries (OCL). This administrator and the System staff oversee the state and county funding and its distribution to the local libraries, as well the maintenance of the rotating book club collections.
