CMLE is one of seven regional multitype library systems in Minnesota. The multitypes were organized in 1979 for the purpose of developing common ways for libraries of different types to work together. The member libraries include K-12, academic, public and special libraries. Each regional center tailors its services to the expressed needs in their region. CMLE serves 12 Central Minnesota counties: Aitkin, Benton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Sherburne, Stearns, Todd and Wright. CMLE is located in the James W. Miller Learning Resources Center at St. Cloud State University.
