Mission Statement: The mission of the Claverack Free Library is to provide resources to the community to encourage critical readers, thinkers and information users and to connect to our community with each other and the world.
Core Values: The Claverack Library – its Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers – is committed to the following values. We value the library as a public forum: it is a community facility for open communication of ideas and information; its collection, displays, programs and services reflect an array of opinions and viewpoints.
Open Access: The Claverack Library values free, open, unrestricted access to its collections and services. We are committed to connecting our patrons to the ideas, information and materials they wish to explore in a friendly, nonjudgmental manner. We strive to offer materials, programs and services that represent the needs of our diverse population.
