On Monday, a letter from Interim ..., 12 Dec 2013 [cached]
On Monday, a letter from Interim State Librarian Jennifer Nelson was sent to Lyon County Board Chairman Rick Anderson, Plum Creek Director Mark Ranum and Plum Creek Board Chairman Jim Schmidt.
"The state is very clear about counties being mandated into regional library systems," Ranum said this week. Because of this, Ranum said, it was surprising Lyon County went ahead with the decision to withdraw.
Ranum serves as the director of the Pioneerland system, as well as Plum Creek.
If Lyon County does leave Plum Creek, Ranum said, it's also not clear how it would affect the Marshall-Lyon County Library. The library currently receives funding from both the county and the city of Marshall.
After the Lyon County Board announced its intent to leave Plum Creek last week, Ranum told the directors of the Minneota and Tracy public libraries that they would not be affected by Lyon County's decision.
Ranum said it might still be possible for the Plum Creek board to come to a resolution with Marshall-Lyon County, but he noted that board had been trying to reach that resolution for three years already.
"I'm always hopeful that something can be worked out so people in the region get full access to the library system," Ranum said.

MARK RANUM - PLUM CREEK OUTREACH SERVICES Marc Ranum, Plum Creek Library System Director, joined the meeting to discuss a new method for library service delivery for Pipestone County communities. Due to increases in diesel fuel prices and the large expense required to replace the current bookmobile, the Plum Creek Library system has proposed a new service delivery method which will include community visits for one hour twice per month instead of once per month with a smaller vehicle, and therefore, smaller inventory. Collections will be targeted to the audiences at each location, such as early literacy materials for daycares and young children, and large print and audio books for communities with larger senior populations. Director Ranum presented for approval an Outreach Services Contract for January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013, in which Plum Creek Library System agrees to continue to provide outreach services via the new service delivery method to Pipestone County residents at a cost of $250.00 per month, per location, for a total of $3000.00 per year.
According to the story, neither M-LCL ..., 3 July 2013 [cached]
According to the story, neither M-LCL President Will Thomas nor PCLS Director Mark Ranum "could say for certain how these restrictions would affect the library in the long run.
Director Ranum's "a few days" hardly seems fair - it takes that much time for a library to publish its new book list and have patrons given a chance to review such a list even with high speed internet use.
