Library a Home for Teens

Extended hours for midterms were a big hit, but this is not all we have on tap in the Ellis Family Teen Center for those in grades 6 through 12.

The 3rd in our series of Teen Trivia afternoons for teams of 9th through 12th graders is coming up on February 6th, with the final tournament of the year scheduled for May.

We are pleased to welcome NY Times columnist and author Frank Bruni to Ridgefield on March 6th for a presentation and workshops based on his book “Where You Go Is Not Who You Will Be.” Registration is required at We also invite students and parents to visit our College Corner to learn more about post-secondary school options.

Our popular Reading Is a Family Affair intergenerational book discussion series is being expanded to include sessions for those in grades 6-8 and their parents, starting with Gary D. Schmidt’s “Okay for Now” on March 15th.

Joining Crafternoons, Teen Tech Thursdays and Middle and High School Critics as monthly programs are a Teen Writers Group and Fandoms Unite, a celebration of pop culture.

Add in Ridgefield Folk concerts and an upcoming “Scholarly Look at Harry Potter,” and it’s no wonder the Library is becoming a true home for Ridgefield teens.
