Fall in Love with the Library – and all of Ridgefield – this Weekend

It’s time to Fall in Love with Ridgefield this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The annual celebration of Ridgefield’s rich history, culture, shopping, dining, music, arts and beyond offers dozens of activities for all ages.  Highlights include a costumed 5K Pumpkin Run, a scarecrow scavenger hunt, a pumpkin recipe contest and much, much more.  The Library’s contributions to this festive weekend include:

·         Meet the Natives - a family nature program (for ages 3+) with the Woodcock Nature Center, at the Library, Saturday at 2:00 PM

·         Ridgefield Folk with singer/songwriter Susan McKeown, at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Sunday at 2:00 PM. Susan was originally scheduled to appear last fall but was postponed due to Superstorm Sandy – we are thrilled to finally bring her to Ridgefield.

·         Community Art Project, organized by the Watershed Gallery.  Stop by the field next to the gallery and the Library at 11:00 AM or 3:00 PM on Saturday to create “altered book” pages as part of a project to benefit the New Ridgefield Library.  Discarded old books supplied by the Friends of the Library!

For more on the full schedule of events, pick up a brochure at the Library or around town or keep your eyes on Facebook for updates!
