Library Lines: National Library Week

In the words of the American Library Association’s theme for National Library Week 2017 (April 9 to 15), Libraries Transform. While not as easy to quantify as numbers of items borrowed or attendance at programs, individual transformative experiences are at the heart of what libraries today do. And while many of these interactions take place between staff and patrons, libraries are also places where we can all come together to share with and learn from each other. Here are just a few examples observed recently at the Ridgefield Library.
