NASHVILLE, TN – As libraries develop their services to meet the needs of today's patrons, systems like the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System are selecting Ingram Content Group for its comprehensive library supply solutions.

"Our mission is to connect our diverse community with library resources that enrich, enlighten and entertain," said Mary Jean Jakubowski, director, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System. "As patron needs change, Ingram can provide print and audio books to meet and exceed their expectations – their pricing combined with title selection, fill rate and speed of delivery made them the right choice to be our primary print provider."

Ingram Content Group has been named the primary vendor of print materials for the 37 branch Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System, which celebrated 175 years of service in 2011. The libraries which serve as centers of information, education, culture and entertainment for the residents of Erie County, New York had 3.65 million patron visits last year.

"The Buffalo and Erie County Public Library system is recognized as a community asset and we are pleased that Ingram's comprehensive library services will have a key role in supporting the system and their patrons," said Rich Rosy, Vice President and General Manager, Ingram Content Group library services. "We look forward to our expanded work with the Buffalo & Erie County libraries."

Ingram continues to grow the number of large public library systems it works with in North America. Ingram's library services division recently announced its work with the Columbus Metropolitan Library System earlier this month.
