Headquartered in Norman, Oklahoma, the Pioneer Library System (PLS) serves Cleveland, McClain, and Pottawatomie counties through twelve branches in 10 communities as well as Information Stations in rural communities and is governed by a 13-member board of trustees. Materials owned by the library system are accessible to all who live, work, own property or attend school in the service area. Founded in 1958, PLS was the first public library system established in Oklahoma. In this Amigos Member Spotlight, Executive Director Lisa Wells shares history and current services the PLS provides.
