2014 New Interlibrary Loan Policy

Effective 1/2/2014

            Effective January 2, 2014, the Library System will accept both fiction and nonfiction book requests.   The Library System will use the UB Illiad program for out of system requests.  UB currently charges CCLS $8.00 per request, whether it is filled or not.  The System is subsidizing each of those requests by $6.00; the patron will pay $2.00 only when their request is filled.

           Any material owned by a nonautomated member library, is considered an interlibrary loan and there is no charge for those requests.

  • Fiction and nonfiction books may be requested
  • Patron pays $2.00 to their library when their out-of-system interlibrary loan is received
  • Borrowing library will receive a bill from CCLS Business Office for any out-of-system Interlibrary loans received during that month.

CCLS will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving, November 28, 2013 & Friday, November 29, 2013


CCLS will be closed on Monday, October 14, 2013, in observance of Columbus Day


October CCLS Circulator is now available!

2013 System Annual Meeting

Member Library Directors should have received a paper invitation and registration form for the 2013 CCLS Annual Meeting in their delivery.  Attached here is a pdf version.

**In the interest of saving money–per Long Range Plan Goal 4.2 if you are keeping track–we are not mailing invitations to each Trustee this year** Please pass on Annual Meeting information to your Trustees! Here’s the basics:

What: 2013 CCLS Annual Meeting!

Where: Robert H. Jackson Center,  305 East Fourth St., Jamestown, NY

When: Wednesday, October 9, 2013: Cash Bar at 6pm, Dinner at 6:30pm

How: Each Library Director has a registration form.  Fill it out and return it to Cindy Peterson by October 2  (in the delivery, or email: cpeterson@cclslib.org, or fax: 484-1205).

How Much: Each Library can bring 2 representatives for free; additional guests welcome to attend at a cost of $14 each (include payment with the registration form please).

Why: Have a delicious meal, share ideas with other library lovers, elect two new System Trustees, celebrate our accomplishments, and listen to an engaging talk (with apologies, the keynote speaker will be Eli Guinnee–I promise this will not happen again next year).

Any questions, let me know.
