How the System Works

The North State Cooperative Library System provides library staffs with fax machines, computers, electronic mail and a delivery system to improve resource sharing.

Grants to the North State Cooperative Library System are made by the Library Services and Technology Act and the California Library Services Act. You, too, support NSCLS every time you use its services.

System Advisory Board (SAB)

Each Cooperative Library System has an advisory board that is comprised of a representative from each public library member jurisdiction. Advisory board members are appointed by the jurisdiction from among its residents. The advisory board reviews System programs and services and offers citizen input for the Council’s consideration.
