LYL - Love Your Library Event 2018
    All around town September 28 & 29

It was so much fun the last few years, we just had to do it again! Celebrating a centerpiece of Ridgefield's cultural heritage, LYL is designed to highlight the breadth of the programming offered by the Library, and the vital role the Town and its citizens play in our success.  Our hope is to raise awareness of all the programs and services the Library has to offer, as well as to raise funds for the Library on this one day. See below for details of all the activities so many people were able to enjoy.
