About the North Chatham Free Library

Our Library dates back to 1886 when a local resident, Bessie Peck, was instrumental in the formation of a Chautauqua Society. Since then, the library has been a gathering place for members of the community, sponsoring diverse programs throughout the year for all ages. The Library was first Chartered in 1915. It is your “Window to Learning.” Come and visit us. Your library card is a passport from this lovely hamlet to the global community and back again.

Mission Statement

The North Chatham Free Library serves to enrich the quality of life for a diverse and growing community of all ages. Our library is dedicated to encouraging a love of learning and an appreciation of libraries.

The library does this by providing resources, services, and programs, which enhance literacy, education, and life skills, as well as promoting arts and culture. The Library’s programs are provided free or for a nominal cost to patrons.
