Rock On, Readers!

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 Libraries Rock! Summer Reading Program.  Readers of all ages enjoyed games, programs, prizes, and special events with a rockin’ theme.  The Summer Reading Program is possible thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Ridgefield Library.  While the organized activities have ended, children through grade 6 can continue to log their reading and collect prizes until August 29th. 

RidgeCon, the Library’s daylong celebration of pop culture and fandom held on August 18th, was preceded this year by an innovative Friday evening event for adults, Blackout: RidgeCon After Dark.  Blackout---part escape room, part mystery night, part scavenger hunt.  It was a great night, and we thank Ridgefield Academy for their support of Blackout, and the Friends of the Ridgefield Library for sponsoring another fun and successful RidgeCon.

A busy summer at the Library?  Yes!  And there’s so much more to come in September:  author events, jazz celebration, the launch of our STEAM corner, book discussions, programs for children and teens, and the annual Love Your Library weekend September 28th and 29th.  Go to to access the Library’s calendar of events and for more information.
