While the Library’s physical space remains closed, our virtual Library is open and busy. Your response and participation to our online programming has been wonderful. Book groups, classes, story times, activities and lectures have been filling up! It makes our staff so happy to see you, even if only over a screen. There has also been a doubling of the use of downloadable resources. We have eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming movies, tv and music, as well as online courses, language learning and more. Please visit the Library’s 24/7 virtual branch at http://www.ridgefieldlibrary.orgfor access to it all.
With the work being done locally and at the state level on easing stay-at-home orders, we want to assure you all that the Library is working on a detailed, phased, reopening plan. Library-specific recommendations are continuing to be developed from both state and federal authorities. But above all, we will do what is in the best interest of Ridgefield’s health and safety. Making sure that our staff can work safely and that we can serve you safely is our guiding principle. As a timeline is developed, we will be sharing details.
