Shop Locally and Support the Library

Want to shop locally and support the library? Now you have several opportunities to do both at the same time!

The Library is proud to be one of the locations in town where you can purchase the brand new Ridgefield 300th Anniversary Video on DVD. Did you enjoy the Library’s Ridgefield Writes Author Festival? What about the Governor’s Ball or the July 5th parade? Produced by videographer Ed Simmons, the video features highlights and favorite moments from the yearlong tercentennial celebrations. The cost is $19.95, and a portion of the proceeds from copies bought here go to support the Library. Visa and MasterCard accepted.

To preview the video, you can check out the display monitor at the Library’s circulation desk or come to a special presentation at the Library on Thursday, December 4th at 7 PM. Also on hand will be Geoffrey Morris, author of the beautiful new coffee table book “Ridgefield at 300.” Copies of both DVD and book will be available for sale.

For the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list, visit Books on the Common during Ridgefield Library Days on Friday, November 28th (10 AM – 6 PM), Saturday the 29th (10 AM – 6 PM) and Sunday the 30th (10 AM – 5 PM). Not only will you experience the friendly and knowledgeable help of a locally-owned independent bookstore, you will save time and gas money by staying close to home. And, as a further benefit, if you show your Ridgefield Library card when you make a book or audiobook purchase during this weekend, the bookstore will donate 15% of the proceeds to the Library.

Holiday closing update: The Library will be closed on Thursday, November 27th and Friday, November 28th for Thanksgiving and open again on Saturday and Sunday for your convenience.
