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.
