The Foundation for Mohawk Valley Libraries raises money to support the mission of the Mohawk Valley Library System, helping the 14 member public libraries serve their communities.
The Mohawk Valley Library System saves taxpayer’s money by delivering services, vision and expertise to public libraries and communities in the Mohawk Valley. MVLS services allow member public libraries to meet the needs of over 135,000 active library users, providing free education, low-cost recreation and economic development in our four county service area. Community members visited their public libraries 1.5 million times in 2014, borrowing more than 1.6 million library items. Over 205,000 computer sessions were facilitated and over 68,000 attended classes and events. These library activities promote community engagement, foster civic responsibility and enhance overall quality of life in our communities.
