Membership is open to anyone over age 18, regardless of where you live. Annual membership starts at $30, and we happily accept more! Remember, we rely on annual membership renewals, meaning you pay every year (which makes up 50% of our total fundraising efforts). Members are entitled to a special preview of books the evening before the annual book sale.

Mission of the Friends
"...to encourage, receive and administer gifts for... special items or projects not covered in the library's operating budget... and to support the library in developing its services and facilities..."
The Friends meet 10 times a year to plan programs, prepare for the annual book sale and investigate sources of funding. Meetings are held in the Chappaqua Library, and open to the public.
