Have you ever wondered how all of those great titles appear on the shelves of your library? It's all through the diligent work of the individuals at the Pioneer Service Center (PSC).
Sometimes the process begins when patrons suggest purchases that they would like the library to include in the collection. These requests are considered daily by the Pioneer Library System Material Selectors and are purchased if possible, because there is nothing that makes librarians happier than acquiring new material. The Selectors tirelessly review multiple book review publications and popular title listings and lovingly create a library collection that is eclectic and represents the diverse interests of the hometown library communities.
The orders are received by our approved list of book sellers and they begin the process of locating the books in warehouses across the world. Sometimes the process of locating a title to fill our requests may seem to take a while, but that time is necessary to insure a copy that will withstand the heavy use by many library patrons is delivered to the library shelves. As the orders are filled they are shipped to the PSC.Add a comment

The following authors and series are considered "popular" by the Pioneer Library System. Because they are popular they will automatically be purchased by the library system. All authors listed will be purchased in both large and regular print.
If you would like to place a hold request on the newest title by the author or in the series please use the library catalog or call your home town library to do so.Add a comment

If you are unable to visit your hometown library because of health or physical challenges, our Home Services program can bring the library to you.
Books by Mail
Homebound customers in Cleveland, McClain, or Pottawatomie County are eligible for our Books by Mail program. Using this service, you can choose to borrow any of the items in the hometown libraries' collections. The items will be mailed to you at the library's expense, for a standard three-week borrowing period. Once your borrowing period is over, you send the material back in a postage paid mailing bag. There is no cost to you.
