Our Mission and Plan

for serving the community at OPL


The Ossining Public Library is a School District Public Library chartered by the State of New York to serve all residents of the Ossining School District. As a member of the Westchester Library System, it also provides services to a larger community.

The Ossining Public Library enriches, connects, and inspires our community.

The Ossining Public Library will be the community’s center for lifelong learning.


Strategic Plan

As we plan for the library’s future, it is imperative that we respond to the wants and needs of the Ossining community. This document establishes the library’s vision, mission, and goals, as we move forward and respond to those needs. The Ossining community, staff, strategic planning committee members, and the Board of Trustees were integral in creating this plan; it is a true community effort.
