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.
