We serve library patrons and 30 public libraries and 3 reading centers in Northeastern New York. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for this website or other aspects of library service in the North Country! You can always email us at info2@cefls.org and we'll do our best to help.

Just for fun....


We Advocate for Libraries!

On February 26, CEFLS sent a group to Albany to meet with Betty Little, Janet Duprey and Dan Stec. See what we were asking them to do at New York Library Association's Legislative Priorities Page.  Please help us by sending a quick message HERE. It really helps!
