Summer Starts Soon @ the Library

Beginning June 21st, the Ridgefield Library will be switching to its summer schedule and dropping Sunday hours until after Labor Day. We will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 AM to 9 PM and Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Don’t forget that many library resources are available on our website even when we are closed, such as our catalog, event calendar, downloadable audiobooks, numerous research databases and the InfoAnytime 24/7 virtual reference desk.

Our Summer Reading Programs begin Monday, June 22nd and run through August 1st. “Be Creative @ your Library” is the theme this year, and we have lots of wonderful programs, prizes and creative activities in store for children, teens and adults. Sign up any time from the 22nd on; just read one book before you come in to get started.

Training for Summer Reading volunteers will take place on June 15 and 17. All volunteers must attend one session. Contact Children’s Services for information.

Also coming soon is the addition of a self-service check-out station in Children’s Services. We hope this will shorten the lines and reduce the hubbub at the Circulation Desk, especially during Summer Reading.
