The problem with Marshall not sharing their new books is that they still borrow new books from the other Plum Creek Libraries! How's that for equal sharing. If you are going to be part of a team, you can't think of just yourself. You think of everyone. Share and share alike.

You don't understand why because your whole life has been you, you, you. If you're going to be a part of a system (a team), you can't think of yourself, you think of everyone. For some reason, that escapes you.

So a majority of books I used to get came from other libraries. Will marshall be purchasing all the books I want now?

As a rule, these regional library systems have worked well, especially in the more rural areas That is why I would ask that the reps to take a good look to find out why it isn't working here.

On the face of it, it looks like the relies on the bigger libraries like Marshall to buy more new books - but the regional library system wants almost immediate access to them. I don't see why the library buying the books can't limit them to their own patrons for four months.

Something isn't right for the Plum regional system.

Al, I can't believe you are asking state reps to step in. How about the feds after hat? You are antigovernment when it suits you, which I hate to say most of us are as well.

I really hope that there is more to this disagreement than the policy squabble appearing on the surface. If the Library and County board are making a long term strategic move to improve and streamline services and reduce expenses, great. If it actually is just an overreaction to a policy snit... shame on them.

Yeah, who the h3ll are they to ask that Marshall share?

You do realize that the county is also citing an overstaffed administration, or did you miss that?

You can't possibly be for reducing that, can you?

"At this point, commissioners say they don't know exactly how withdrawing from the Plum Creek system will affect libraries within the county"

Now, there's leadership for you.

I think the Plum system is out of control and is demanding things they are not willing to pay for. Before this ends however, where are our state government reps on this issue and why aren't they involved?

Looks like they figured out a compromise. Sounds more like 7 year olds fighting over a ball.

And your post is further proof of that. Good decision by the board.

As if there isn't enough ignorance in Lyon County already.
