Documentaries, etc. @ your Library

While many people know about the Ridgefield Library’s collection of entertainment DVDs, some may not know that there are many nonfiction titles to choose from as well.  Documentaries such as Ken Burns’ series Jazz, Baseball, The War, Civil War and The Brooklyn Bridge are available.  One can find DVDs in many subject areas.  For example,  Meerkat Manor, The Life of Birds and The Dog Whisperer are among the titles dealing with animals.  Science titles include The Planets, Evolution and Planet Earth.   If exercising is your goal, we have many titles at varying skill levels.  Sister Wendy’s Story of Painting, the Art21 series and The Art of Steal are among those on art.  DVD biographical portraits include John Adams, Martin Luther King, Jr., Edith Piaf and Albert Einstein.  For opera fans, we have many titles to choose from including Hansel and Gretel, the Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Rigoletto and more. Dance titles offer a variety from An Evening with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to Kirov Stars: Shakespeare Dance Trilogy to Sleeping Beauty.  

Nonfiction DVDs are shelved with the books in the same subject areas.  Newest additions are found at, clicking Catalog and Collections, then Media.
