Shop Local and Support your Library at the Same Time

Have you taken the Shop Local Holiday Pledge?  This new movement spearheaded by the Chamber of Commerce encourages Ridgefielders to shop, give and eat locally this holiday season.  You can find out more and take the pledge at the Chamber’s Facebook page.

One way you can enter into this spirit is by taking advantage of the annual Ridgefield Library Days at Books on the Common during the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Just show your Ridgefield Library card at the register, and 15% of the proceeds of your purchase will be donated to the Library. To make your holiday shopping even easier, the bookstore will be open Friday the 29th from 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM, Saturday the 30th from 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM and Sunday December 1st from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

As an additional incentive, the 30th is also Small Business Saturday, when shoppers get a rebate on purchases made with an American Express card at participating small retailers including Books on the Common.

The Library will be closed on Thursday the 28th and Friday the 29th, so be sure to come in before then if you don’t have a card. Stop by the Circulation Desk today; all you need is proof of Ridgefield residence.
