About Plum Creek Library System
Our region in southwestern Minnesota was the setting of Laura Ingalls Wilder's book ON THE BANKS OF PLUM CREEK from which we take our name.
The Twelve Library Systems work closely together with the State Library Agency to provide smoothly integrated, statewide resources. The Minnesota Reciprocal Borrowing Compact insures users can access collections owned by any library around the state.
