Karin Fallon One of Four New Library Board Members

The Ridgefield Library is pleased to announce that several new members have joined its Board of Directors. This week we introduce Karin Fallon. Karin is shown at right with Bill Wyman, one of the other new directors who will be profiled in coming weeks.

After ten years of corporate experience in the commercial insurance industry, Karin Fallon began to serve various nonprofit organizations in Ridgefield over the last 20 years. She has served on the boards of the Ridgefield Community Kindergarten and the PTA boards of Branchville Elementary, East Ridge Middle School and Ridgefield High School. She is also active in the leadership of her church in Stamford, Connecticut. As a young child, a visit to the town library was a weekly event, and Karin's interest and desire to serve our town library is based on the joy of those experiences and utmost appreciation for the many ways the Ridgefield Library currently serves its community. In Karin's words, “While the education our public school system provides is the basis for the future of our children, it is the library that is the heart of the community, where all are welcome and all are served. I am honored to be a part of this great tradition by becoming a member of the Ridgefield Library board.”
