Kiplinger Features Libraries in “Fabulous Freebies 2011”

The annual August “Fabulous Freebies” round-up by Kiplinger magazine starts out with the reminder that “No list of freebies would be complete without our perennial favorite: your public library,” and it goes on to cite free “books, magazines, audiobooks, e-books, video games, CDs and DVDs” along with free activities such as “book clubs, lectures, film screenings, children’s story hours and craft activities.”    

Elsewhere in the article they suggest visiting the library for Free Hobbies (#1), Free E-Books (#18) and Free Audiobooks (#19).  To be sure, you will find all of this at the Ridgefield Library.  But we also offer additional resources and services that complement some of the other freebies they mention. Many of these do cost us money, but they are free for use by Library visitors or cardholders.  Try ValueLine or Morningstar investment reports as a supplement to the list of Free Investing Apps (#4).   Our Museum Passes fit nicely under the category of Free Outings (#28). The Foundation Center Cooperating Collection can help with Free Money for College (#26).  And, of course, you can even peruse the latest issue of Kiplinger for free @ your Library – or check the full article on our website at
