From the Director

Chris NolanWelcome to the Ridgefield Library! For well over 100 years the Library has served as a community destination and vital resource. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff, strong collections, diverse programming, and welcoming space are the result of commitment to our Vision for the benefit of our community.

As I begin my role as Library Director, I look forward to working with the staff as we continue our tradition of excellence. Our dedicated Library Board of Directors, Friends of the Library, and many generous community donors help to make what we do possible. Thank you!

I hope to meet you in person the next time you visit the Ridgefield Library.
