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!
