About Us

We are one of four non-profit corporations established by the Nebraska Library Commission to provide access to improved library services through the cooperation of all types of libraries and media centers within the counties included in each System area.

Our Mission is to assist libraries and media centers in meeting community needs by serving as an advocate for libraries through facilitation, training and consultation.
Thirty-one counties served: Adams, Blaine, Boyd, Brown, Buffalo, Cherry, Custer, Dawson, Franklin, Frontier, Furnas, Garfield, Gosper, Greeley, Hall, Harlan, Holt, Howard, Kearney, Keya Paha, Lincoln, Logan, Loup, Phelps, Red Willow, Rock, Sherman, Thomas, Valley, Webster, and Wheeler counties.

The Central Plains Library System is funded primarily through state appropriations and the federal Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.
