Delivered with love: the PSC

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.
