The School Library System
The School Library System (SLS) of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, established by Commissioner's Regulations in 1985, is a state funded program dedicated to improving the libraries of the region's 22 districts and non-public schools. Through cutting edge web development, professional support, and the facilitation of resource sharing tools, the SLS provides mission critical support for libraries and classrooms. Our programs have been recognized nationally as exemplars of the next generation of library services.

This is testing whether or not you can see the embedded YouTube video below at your school. This is using the enhanced privacy version of embedding so it comes from http://www.youtube-nocookie.com which might make a difference.
The School Library System is once again offering member libraries an ALA Award Books Grant. You will be able to select either the award winner or one of the honor books for each of the four covered awards (Caldecott, Geisel, Newbery, Printz). While selection is open for all libraries for all awards, please only purchase books that you will use in your library to help keep costs down. In order to be eligible for this grant, you must apply online using this form by Friday, March 21st.
Moving forward, we are moving all functionality from the former SLS site to this new internal communication site. Currently we have moved the Multiple Copy Request process and the Library Forums over. We have also created an SLS Support forum where you can post requests for the SLS Staff. We will be moving over and adding more functionality over time.
