Welcome to the Southern Tier Library System

As a cooperative library system, our focus is on Connecting Community Libraries within the region. We subscribe to a single mission of empowering public libraries to provide amazing services within our communities. STLS is comprised of 48 library outlets throughout Allegany, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties.

The impacts of our member libraries can be life-changing. Our region boasts 183,192 library cardholders. This represents 65% of the population. Each year, community members visit our libraries more than 1 million times to enrich their quality of life. STLS member libraries are passionate about their work, and in return, community members gain significant cost-saving services. It is a relationship demonstrating the essence of community partnership.

As we look to the future, STLS will strengthen our 50-year relationship with member libraries. Connecting Community Libraries means bringing together all available resources to affirm sustainable public library services. Our libraries afford educational, cultural and economic opportunities for all. STLS will partner with, and connect our member libraries to make the Southern Tier a vibrant community in which we are all proud to live.
