National Everything Month

Welcome to National Everything Month! There are so many commemorations and occasions in April that we can hardly find time to observe them all. Here are a few highlights.

  • National Library Week – We’re extending this one through the end of the month, with a special offer on Ridgefield Library signature items. Pick up a logo travel mug AND our colorful special edition library card – both for one low price of $5.00.
  • National Poetry Month – Youngsters can visit the Poetry Wall in Children’s Services to share pocket poems and their own creations, plus sign up for Poetry Theater on April 30th (for 2nd – 5th graders).
  • Jazz Appreciation Month – Don’t miss the fun on April 23rd when the David Morgan Trio will perform standard jazz repertoire while explaining the history and concepts behind the performance.
  • Earth Day – We’re celebrating by eliminating printed overdue notices and expanding our recycling efforts, as described last week.
  • National Volunteer Week – Actually, there is so much going on this month we are going to put off our volunteer recognition activities until the fall! Stay tuned for news of a special event honoring the hundreds of volunteers young and old who make the Ridgefield Library such a wonderful place.
