The Ridgefield Library is open. Here’s how we can help you today:

Need Wifi?

Our wifi is accessible 24/7. With support from the Leir Foundation, the signal has been boosted so that it reaches the length of the parking lot and covers the front lawn. Enjoy new outdoor seating on the Library lawn, courtesy of the Friends of the Ridgefield Library.  Always practice social distancing and wear a mask if you are near the building. Please do not block our book drop or staff entrance areas.

Contactless Lobby Pickup
Monday-Saturday during Express Library hours

Pick up requested materials in the Library Lobby.  Learn more about this service.

Due to the growing number of positive COVID-19 cases in our area and in anticipation of further increases in the coming weeks, the Ridgefield Library will be reducing the number of in-Library visitors at any one time and limiting visit length to no more than 30 minutes per person per day effective immediately. We are asking our patrons to restrict their stays to the minimum time needed. Our Express Browsing Hours remain:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10am-1pm; 2pm-5pm (closed 1pm-2pm for enhanced cleaning)
  • Wednesday 4pm-7pm
  • Saturday 10am-1pm

The main building is open for browsing shelves, picking up available requested materials, managing your account, asking our Librarians reference questions, and more. Read more about our Express Library Services and hours.
