What perfect timing! October 19 through 25 is National Friends of Libraries Week and also happens to be the week of the annual fall used book sale held by the Friends of Ridgefield Library. Taking place for the first time on the Lower Level of the new Ridgefield Library, the sale begins on Friday the 24th and runs through Monday the 27th, with thousands of attractively priced titles in all categories, from children’s favorites to cookbooks.
Proceeds from book sales allow the Friends to sponsor some of the Library’s most popular activities. During Friends of Libraries Week these include the monthly Poetry Discussion (focusing this month on World War I era poet Wilfred Owen) and the seasonal intergenerational program Reading is a Family Affair. Children in grades 3 - 5 together with an adult are invited to a very special book discussion following a pizza dinner. Register at the Children's Services desk and receive a free copy of the book “Because of Winn Dixie” by Kate DiCamillo, courtesy of the Friends.
Details of the book sale and more about the Friends can be found at www.ridgefieldlibrary.org. Take a look, come to the sale, and thank a Friend during their special week!
