Library Lines: Arts alive at the library

Arts programming is alive at the Ridgefield Library this fall. Opportunities abound for those who love to write, read, listen and create. The sixth annual Ridgefield Writers Conference happens Sept. 21, and the Ridgefield Folk series kicks off on Sept. 23. The library’s many book groups are in full swing, offering lively and thought-provoking discussions every month. The library’s STEAM corner is open and ready for all makers and creators.

On Sept. 30, teens and parents are invited to attend Thriving Through the Arts: College and Beyond, a special program focusing on next steps for young musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists.
