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 – http://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.
