Ramapo Catskill Library System
The Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS) is a non-profit, cooperative public library system chartered in 1959 by the New York State Board of Regents. RCLS working cooperatively with its member libraries provides coordinated services, guidance, training, support and leadership to member library trustees and staff to sustain their effort to be responsive, proactive, vital community institutions that meet the changing needs of their users in Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and southern Ulster counties. Working in cooperation with member libraries, RCLS helps to raise awareness about library services and works to eliminate barriers to library access and use.
RCLS serves 47 chartered public libraries in urban, suburban and rural settings and is dedicated to meeting the needs of their communities. RCLS is also dedicated to the professional development and continuing education to member libraries' staff, directors, and trustees for the training and skills development needed to support excellent library service.
As a way of saying "thank you" to the many employees and volunteers of the Ramapo Catskill Library System and its member libraries, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing to those individuals as well as their immediate adult family members.
