Even before Opening Weekend, the Library staff has been busy talking to groups around town who are excited about the possibilities the new building will offer for community events and joint programs. Before we start welcoming them as our guests, however, we want to take a moment to thank the organizations that have played host to Library activities during our construction period.
For children’s programs, we are indebted to the Ridgefield Boys and Girls Club, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church and especially to Parks & Recreation, the Ridgefield Playhouse and Woodcock Nature Center, who also co-sponsored some wonderful family performances and other events.
Key partners and hosts for adult programs included the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Keeler Tavern Museum, the Prospector, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, the Ridgefield Playhouse and the Watershed Gallery. Together we have been able to keep up a lively stream of educational and cultural activities. Thanks also to the Community Center/Lounsbury House, the First Congregational Church and the Ridgefield Historical Society/Scott House for providing space for various Library events.
We look forward to continued fruitful partnerships with the many wonderful organizations that serve the Ridgefield community.
