The goals of the Chappaqua Library are:
- to be a welcoming community center for human interaction, intellectual stimulation and cultural enrichment for people of all ages;
- to provide, through books and other informational, educational and cultural materials, including non-print resources, events and programs, a place where the experience of the past can meet the needs of the present and future;
- to provide access to its own materials and to sources beyond its collections for people on-site and in other locations; and
- to work with institutions, organizations and individuals within the community in the pursuit of these goals.
