Making a Tribute Gift to the Library

Looking for a unique and meaningful way to celebrate a special occasion, honor a colleague, or remember a loved one who has passed away? Consider the Ridgefield Library’s tribute gift program. Donations in honor or memory of cherished individuals recognize their accomplishments and interests while making a gift to the entire community. In these economic times, many people would prefer that money be used to help a valuable institution rather than to buy yet another unneeded tie or knickknack.

Donors may make a general unrestricted gift to support Library operations, or, for a donation of $35 or more, request purchase of materials in a subject area or format particularly appropriate to the honoree (such as children’s books, local history or audiobooks). A special bookplate recognizing your honoree and your generosity will be added to each purchased item.

Making a tribute gift to the Ridgefield Library is easy. Pick up a brochure, or make a secure donation online using Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. Just go to and click on “Supporting the Library.”
