Children's Programs

Come in from the cold and enjoy some wonderful programs in the Lodewick Children's Library this winter!
There's something for everyone, from book clubs to arts & crafts. Sign-up for registered
programs begins February 1st. Join us!

A few things you should know about our children's program procedures:

  • Preference for registration for programs with limited capacity will be given to Ridgefield residents.  If space allows, non-residents are welcome to participate.
  • Parents of children under age 6 must remain in the Lodewick Children’s Library during the time their child is in a program.
  • From time to time, photos and video may be taken of children’s programs for use in Library publicity and documentation, including on our website and social media.  If you prefer not to have your child’s image used, please notify a staff member.
  • The Library makes weather closing and program cancellation decisions independently of the schools or town agencies.
    See our full policy here.


Library Wish List
Like our monthly weekend family concerts or the clever player+book Playaway combos for children? Help us keep them coming with a tax-deductible "purchase" from our Wish List catalog. Choose from dozens of items at giving levels starting as low as $25. And a Wish List purchase can be a great special occasion gift for the person who doesn't need any more "stuff."
