Plan Ahead for 2009 at the Library

Here are a few tips for planning ahead for 2009 at the Ridgefield Library.

  • Registration for winter storytimes and after school programs is taking place in Children’s Services December 2nd through 8th. Programs, from Mother Goose to Terrific Twos and beyond, start the week of January 5th. Stop by for a full calendar.

  • Our Critics’ Circle and AM Book Groups will be announcing their selections for the first half of 2009 next week. New members are always welcome, so pick up a list at the Library or check

  • Are you part of a community book group? The Library is happy to make arrangements to get you multiple copies of your discussion titles, but advance planning is essential. We recommend submitting your requests at least one month before you need copies in hand. Consult with our staff now about your choices for early 2009.

  • Do you have health or physical limitations that make it difficult to get to the Library? Now is the time to sign up for our new Homebound Delivery Service before the snow flies and your mobility is even more restricted. Call Dorothy Pawlowski at 438-2282 x1003 to register, and volunteer drivers will deliver books and other materials right to your door.

  • 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy, and the Ridgefield Library is playing a big part in observing this landmark occasion. We have been chosen as one of only 40 libraries nationwide to host “Visions of the Universe,” an exhibit created by NASA and the American Library Association to commemorate the 400 years of exploring and learning about space since Galileo first turned his telescope on the heavens. Under the guidance of local astronomer Dr. Heidi Hammel, there will be dozens of activities this spring throughout the community. Stay tuned for details!
