Library Supports School-Community Initiative

Have you noticed the round decal with an orange paw print that is now mounted on the main entrance door to the Library?  This is a visible symbol of our support for new East Ridge Middle School School-Community Initiative.  The emblem “signifies that a healthy, safe and thriving community is a partnership between students, staff, parents, business owners, town officials and other residents” while serving to remind students that good citizenship extends beyond school.  The Library is a daily destination for scores of students from ERMS and other schools, and we are proud to support this initiative.

Several other decals on our door advertize our participation in other programs that might be of interest to you. One is the emblem of the Ridgefield Senior Gold Card program, through which we offer seniors a one-on-one training session with a librarian on our catalog, one of our research databases or downloadable audiobooks or ebooks.  Another demonstrates our membership in the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce, with whom we partner to provide numerous programs for the benefit of the business community.  Finally, there are the universal logos indicating that we accept MasterCard and Visa for payment of fines, replacement charges and even tax-deductible donations.
