ECSD Library Mission

The mission of the Libraries of the Elmira City School District is to offer a welcoming and supportive environment while promoting and cultivating a life-long love of reading, learning and independent thinking to all students, staff, and the community. Through collaboration, research and thinking critically, students will become proficient, ethical, learners in accessing information using 21st century skills.

Our Vision

We see our libraries as equitable, safe, inviting spaces where the expertise of our School Librarians and innovative programming produces critical and ethical users of information and technologies while developing a lifelong love of learning, reading, and creating. We believe the ECSD libraries will empower and support others through diverse library resources and collections to collaborate, be creative and grow our school community within a global society.
