From the Board Chair

It has been more than 10 years in the works, but the New Ridgefield Library has opened its doors! Members of the Library Board have devoted countless hours and considerable talent to crafting a mission and vision, planning a facility to embody it and assuring the support needed to build and support the Library as the anchor of downtown and the heart of our community. All are welcomed and encouraged to come read, discover, question, connect and thrive. Please feel free to contact me directly with your questions or suggestions about the Library.
