Winter has finally arrived and along with it come year end rollover activities for Acquisitions staff.  As always, staff will be working hard to ensure that all orders get entered and sent to the vendors before the year end cut off. In order for them to accomplish this, all orders from member libraries must be  received at Peace Library System headquarters no later than November 29th at 4:00 pm.  Orders received after that date will not be entered and sent to the vendors until January 2014.

All vouchers must be received at PLS headquarters no later than December 12th at 4:00 pm.  Vouchers received after that date will not be entered and paid until January 2014. Your cooperation will ensure that year end activities are accomplished in a timely manner.
