Marshall no longer participates in the Plum Creek Regional Library System or the statewide resource sharing system.
If you live in Lyon County but outside the city limits of Marshall, you can pick up a new Plum Creek card free of charge at the Minneota Public Library, Tracy Public Library, or any other Plum Creek member library.
If you live in the city limits of Marshall and wish to use a Plum Creek Library System member library, you will need to pay the $25 annual non-resident fee for a new Plum Creek card.
We are sorry for this inconvenience brought on by the Marshall withdrawal from PCLS. You may contact the Marshall library staff or your Lyon County Commissioner for more information.
