School Library System


The New York State funded School Library Systems program provides a formalized network for public and nonpublic school library media centers across the State and provides for the development of a standardized automated catalog which enhances ILL of resources among the participating schools. The Putnam Northern Westchester School Library System (SLS) provides specific services and programs that support the learning process of students, teachers and staff. Participants have access to a wide range of resources through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), Cooperative Collection Development and a Union Catalog. The SLS also works as liaison with the New York State Education Department to provide library media specialists with the latest information regarding curriculum and instruction and State Education Department initiatives. A SLS Council works together to support regional goals for school library programs with opportunities for collaboration and shared learning opportunities.
