Take your Library with You Wherever You Go

Are you the proud new owner of a tablet computer or smartphone?  Then you will want to know about apps and mobile resources that allow you to access Ridgefield Library resources on the go.  Some are available for Apple devices, some for the Android operating system, some for both.  This is just a taste of what is available, and more features are being introduced every month.

  • Put that time waiting in line to good use brushing up your high school Spanish or one of numerous other  courses available through Mango Languages Mobile.
