Finding the Latest Books and More @ the Library

How do you find out about the latest and greatest books and other materials the Ridgefield Library has to offer?  Of course, you can browse the special displays of new acquisitions but many popular items will be out in circulation as soon as we receive them.

Our staff has developed several online tools to help you explore what’s new and to make it easy for you to get on the list for your favorites - even before we receive them!

You can subscribe to “BookLetters” newsletters that provide a round-up of bestsellers, new and upcoming releases, books discussed on radio and TV and more.  Sign up on the “Reader’s Resources” page on our website at to get these periodic updates sent directly to your inbox.

You can also look for the new feature in our “This Week @ the Library” e-newsletter, which  provides quick links to web listings of new additions to our collections in many popular areas, from mysteries to DVDs.  These pages, which are also accessible on our website, include cover art, summaries, reviews, author interviews and sometimes excerpts, along with handy links to our catalog so you can check availability and request the items that interest you.
