The Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF), a division of the American Library Association, has designated October 16-22 as National Friends of Libraries Week, and there couldn’t be a more apt time to celebrate our own Friends of the Ridgefield Library (FORL).
The Friends Annual Fall Used Book Sale runs this Friday the 21st through Monday the 24th, with thousands of offerings in many popular categories, all at attractive prices. Look for them at their new location at Yanity Gym, also with expanded Friday hours until 8 PM.
Also ongoing now through October 30 is the Friends Fall Silent Auction, featuring great packages created around the theme “Learning about Ridgefield.” There are items to suit diverse interests and budgets, so check out the display near the Circulation Desk and place your bids.
Our Friends make possible some of your favorite library programs and services, including Summer Reading, Camp Snooze, Reading Is a Family Affair, Ridgefield Folk, the Poetry Discussion Group, Mango language learning programs, Great Courses on audio and video, e-books and e-book readers. You can help through your generous support of the Book Sale and the Silent Auction. More information about both is available at www.ridgefieldlibrary.org.
