Welcome to the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library (B&ECPL)! As part of its mission, the Library works to promote lifelong learning by encouraging all children and adults in their enjoyment of reading and discovery and by delivering timely, customer-oriented service to meet the informational, recreational and educational needs of the community.

To accomplish this, the B&ECPL provides the following services for teachers throughout Erie County. Library staff encourage teachers and their students to visit the nearest branch to take advantage of these many opportunities!
