Text and Twitter to Connect with the Library

On the go all day long, connected with family and colleagues via iPhone, BlackBerry or other phone or mobile device?  Then you will want to take advantage of the new ways texting, tweeting and more can help you stay in touch with the Ridgefield Library as well.

Follow us on Twitter and get the latest news on weather cancellations, upcoming events and more, wherever you are. With the crazy weather we have been having, this is a great way to find out fast whether library service has been disrupted by ice, snow, wind, power outage or other force of nature!

Text a Librarian with your reference questions.  Need to find out whether we have a certain book or get the facts for a homework assignment? Just text “askrdg” followed by a space and then your question to 66746, and a librarian will answer promptly during our open hours. 

Why wait till you get home to find out you should have stopped at the Library? You can get on-the-go alerts about overdues, items coming due and requests ready to pick up - all via Library Elf text messages on most cellphone networks.
