From the Board Chair
We are proud to have opened the new Ridgefield Library in May 2014, a major project that was the result of years of work and the generosity of many town residents. The new building has brought important new opportunities. In the first year of operation we have seen an enormous growth in technology programs, the thriving of the Teen Center, an expansion of services that now include US passport applications and renewals, the tremendous use of the seven study rooms and much more. The new technology programs, The Big Read featuring The Great Gatsby and Comic Con are just a few of the things that have allowed for intergenerational enjoyment.
The Ridgefield Library Board is committed to maintaining and growing our tradition of excellence. We couldn't offer the wide range of programs and services along with our customer-oriented staff without the additional support we get from our donors such as you on an annual basis. Our donors are our partners in ensuring that the town of Ridgefield has a library of which to be proud. Thank you so very much.
The Board has several priorities for this year. One of the current initiatives is continuing to strengthen our financial base through exploring possibilities for sources of earned revenue and increasing the percentage of households in town who contribute to the Library. Another is to revise our website. Your comments and questions are always welcomed. Please feel free to contact me as Board chair or our Library Director Chris Nolan (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time.
