What Headquarters Does
The Kitchigami Regional Library System (KRLS) headquarters is in Pine River, MN. It is the technical services center of the regional library. The technology that makes all the branch libraries work as one is housed in this building.

All books and other materials are ordered, cataloged, processed and delivered to the branch libraries from headquarters. Interlibrary loans, which is the practice of borrowing items from other library systems as well as lending KRLS items to other library systems, is coordinated from headquarters.

The KRLS headquarters also provides personnel administration, policy support and implementation, as well as financial operations of the regional library.
