The Library’s Poetry Discussion Group meets on the third Friday of the month from 1:00 – 3:30 PM. One collection of a poet’s work is discussed over two or three sessions. Discussions are led by retired English Professor Dr. Alan Holder. This program has proved to be so popular that we are instituting new rules.
The program is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library, who in the past have made free copies of the selected book available to all participants (as long as supplies lasted). Because demand often outpaces supply, effective immediately these free books will be available only for those who are members of the Friends. To join, print out a membership form from the Library website (www.ridgefieldlibrary.org, look under “About Us” for the Friends page) or pick up a form at any session. Friends membership is a great deal, with dues only $10 per/year for seniors and $15 for adults. And to top it off, Friends dues support your favorite Library activities, like the Poetry Discussion Group.
For non-members a limited number of copies will be available to use at the discussions and some will be for sale (book prices range from approximately $10 to $15 a book).
