Welcome to the Chemung County Library District Blog

Welcome to the Chemung County Library District Blog. Our library has a proud history of innovation and it is only fitting that we find new ways to reach out and expand our services.  This blog, along with our Facebook and Twitter accounts, will provide us the opportunity to better serve our online community.

In the past few years, we have come to realize that libraries are not simply storehouses of information- they are major economic, educational, and cultural drivers and catalysts for change and revitalization. In other words, they are one of the most essential assets any community can possess.

If you can’t visit one of our branches in person, you can find us online. Either way, you will discover a wide variety of services and collections, programs for people of all ages, and most importantly- the knowledge and abilities of a dedicated staff.

So, now that we are truly online, let’s get this party started- what kinds of things would you like to see and discuss in this blog?
