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!
