There are many times where we hear about the misfortune of others only to spend a moment thinking about how terrible it is and then, quickly dismissing the thought, we continue on with our lives.
This past holiday season the patrons of the Chemung County Library District can say they got involved and helped out those less fortunate than themselves.
As part of our Hogmanay celebration the district forgave fines for those who brought in food items that were collected and donated to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. We are delighted to report that we collected a total of 381 food items which totals $1,905 in fines forgiveness.
Melissa Knowles, Food Sourcing Manager for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier accepted the donation from CCLD Director Ronald Shaw and Librarian Chris Corter.

The Steele Memorial Library has been collecting High School Yearbooks from the five area high schools since 1909. They have been very popular with genealogists and others ever since. Unfortunately, there are several years that we do not have. Since they can no longer be purchased, we have to rely on donations of existing copies. Below you will find a list of the years we do not have. If you have a copy of any of these years that you are willing to donate, we would be very grateful. Please contact Phyllis Rogan or Sherry Nichols at 733-9175 or 733-8603.
