NSCLS is a Joint Resolution Agency which means that member jurisdiction joined through passing a resolution. Therefore, no single document exists that shows the date joined and jurisdictions involved. The member jurisdictions are the holders of records of their actions and NSCLS has few if any copies of the resolutions.
The North Sacramento Valley Library Cooperative (NSVLC) existed in the 1960s. (the date of origin and membership is not clear). In December 1967 they began discussion to become a California cooperative library system. In March 1968, a Plan of Service was drafted for the new system. In 1969, a budget exists for the North State Cooperative Library System (NSCLS). There were 12 council members at that time, and the exact original members are not known. The few minutes which can be found for these meetings indicate that there were NSCLS staff.
The “California Library Statistics and Directory 1979” includes data from 1977/78 about NSCLS, and lists the following thirteen library members: Butte County, Colusa County, Del Norte County Library District, Eureka-Humboldt County Library, Lassen County Library, Modoc County Library, Orland Public Library, Plumas County, Shasta County, Siskiyou County, Tehama County, Trinity County, and Willows Public Library. There is a hand-written note on this document which indicates that Colusa County moved to Mountain Valley Cooperative Library System (no date indicated).
An “Agreement for Library Services” from 1984 indicates that NSCLS has been formed as a joint resolution between its members, and includes all the libraries of Butte County, Colusa County, Del Norte County Library District, Glenn, Humboldt County Library, Lassen County Library, Modoc County Library, Plumas County, Shasta County, Sierra, Siskiyou County, Tehama County, Trinity County.
