Strategic Plan
The Field Library is setting a strategy for the next five years to guide our investment in people, facilities, and materials. The Strategic Plan is available below.
Overdue Fines Eliminated!
The Field Library has permanently eliminated overdue fines for all materials. The library will charge for lost and damaged items. Accounts with existing overdue fees will have the fees removed from the account. Please be patient as this is not an automatic process and will take time to review all accounts.
Masks Required
Following the guidelines of the CDC, The Field Library requires masks to be worn inside the library regardless of vaccination status. This change comes as Westchester County is listed as High Risk for Community Transmission for COVID-19. The best way to prevent transmission is to get vaccinated, wear a mask covering your nose and mouth, maintain social distancing, and wash your hands frequently. The Field LIbrary is committed to providing a safe environment for our patrons and staff to access computers, check out materials, attend programs, and utilize library services. With these measures in place we can avoid another shutdown and continue to provide the best library services in Westchester County.

MIssion Statement

The mission of The Field Library is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen the City of Peekskill and Town of Cortlandt community by offering free and open access to library services.

Statement on Racism and Social Injustice

As we face some of the most difficult challenges we have ever seen, The Field Library affirms its commitment to champion diversity, inclusion, equity, and open access to information. We stand with the New York Library Association (NYLA) and the New York Black Librarians Caucus (NYBLC), echo the sentiments of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA), Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) and the American Library Association (ALA), in their condemnation of violence and racism toward Black people, Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities, and all People of Color.

The Field Library is a place that welcomes all and does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender expression, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in its collections, activities, operations, and programs.

The Field Library is located at 4 Nelson Avenue in downtown Peekskill, New York. A short walk from the Hudson River and MetroNorth, we are Peekskill's major information source and a long standing community hub.
