Welcome 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.  Our dedicated Board of Directors, Friends of the Ridgefield Library, and many generous community donors help to make what we do possible.  Thank you! 

The Ridgefield Library recently updated our Strategic Plan

Working with the Library’s Board of Directors and the counsel of more than three dozen community leaders from all corners of town, we updated the Library’s Vision, Mission, Values and Objectives. You will see this plan turning into action as we develop programs, services, collections and more to better meet the needs of our community.  Please click here to see the Plan!
