Mission & Strategic Plan


The mission of the Chappaqua Library is to be a center for community engagement and personal enrichment, providing users with a place where people and ideas meet to change lives.

Strategic Plan

In 2021, the Chappaqua Library Board of Trustees embarked on a journey to create a long-range strategic plan to guide the library through the next five years. To create the plan, they formed the Strategic Planning Committee that included members of the Board of Trustees, the Library staff, the local community and Friends of the Chappaqua Library.

The goals of the strategic plan are driven by the Library’s mission statement, core values, and the results of the committee’s research, interviews, and community survey.

The Chappaqua Library Board of Trustees is committed to the long-range strategic plan and will evaluate how well these goals are met throughout the five-year term of the strategic plan.

Our five strategic plan priorities are

  1. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  2. Community Engagement
  3. Library Services
  4. Sustainability
  5. Space and Infrastructure
