1.1 MISSION AND GOALS

It is the mission of the Chemung County Library District to provide exceptional public library services and programs to our citizens – fulfilling their individual needs for educational, recreational, and cultural information – through contemporary, well-maintained library collections and facilities located throughout Chemung County.

The scope and structure of the Library District:
The Chemung County Library District is comprised of neighborhood libraries in Big Flats, Elmira, Horseheads, Van Etten, and West Elmira. The Bookmobile constitutes a mobile neighborhood library. Taken together, the collections of our libraries serve patrons who reside throughout Chemung County who seek both popular works and in-depth information on many subjects, in many formats, of current and historical interest. Electronically delivered library services available through the Library District’s web page – www.ccld.lib.ny.us -- are becoming more important; for some segments of the population, electronic access may already be their primary avenue to information.
