The Steele Memorial Library has been collecting 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 Sherry or Maggie at 733-8603.

The Central Branch of the Chemung County Library District is pleased to announce a new digital collection has been added to the New York Heritage Digital Collection titled High School Yearbooks from Chemung County.  This collection consists of High School Yearbooks from the Central library’s collection which initially will include Elmira Free Academy and Elmira Southside High School. As the collection grows, we will begin to include Thomas Edison, Horseheads, and Notre Dame. To protect privacy of the students and faculty, the Chemung County Library District will not upload a yearbook until 75 years after its publication.

To browse this new digital collection go to: http://www.ccld.lib.ny.us/yearbooks.htm
