Congratulations to all who participated in the 2017 Build a Better World Summer Reading Program. Teen and adult programs have wrapped up, but children through grade 6 can continue to log their reading and collect prizes until August 31st (the day before school starts). A very special thank you to our long-time Summer Reading sponsors: the Friends of the Ridgefield Library, Books on the Common, Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe and The Toy Chest. We couldn’t do it without them!
After the excitement of RidgeCon and the Solar Eclipse, our staff will be taking a brief break to catch their breaths before fall activities start up. The Library will be open on Saturday, September 2nd from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM but closed on Sunday and Monday for the Labor Day holiday.
Good news for students, commuters and others who have difficulty getting to the Library during the week! Sunday hours from 1:00 to 5:00 PM start up again on September 10th.
The coming of fall will also see our Love your Library Day events (including mini-golf in the stacks!) on September 15th and 16th, the launch of a season-long series of events devoted to Jane Austen, and much more. Check www.ridgefieldlibrary.org for details. See you in September!
