From the Director's Desk

Welcome to The Library Network (TLN). From acquisitions to cataloging, circulation control to account management, delivery of materials, purchasing or Wide Area Network administration, we have one mission – facilitate the process of our Libraries Working Together. Like a multi dimensional restaurant, TLN is a menu driven library cooperative, offering a wide range of services for member selection. From appetizers to a full course meal, our member libraries select their level of service use. Enjoy our rich array of services as you review our website. Bon appetit and Happy Reading!
