The Ridgefield Library welcomes volunteers of all ages from throughout the community.

Talking Books Recording Studio

The Talking Books Recording Studio, located in the Ridgefield Library, relies on volunteer readers, editors, and administrators to provide its valuable service. To inquire about volunteering, please email Sandy.

Connecticut Talking Books (CVSBH, Inc.) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that produces Digital Talking Books for the State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Talking Books and companion digital players are loaned to eligible patrons for free. For more information about receiving this service, inquire at Adult Services in the Ridgefield Library.

Community Service Volunteering

Need to log some community service hours for school, church or synagogue, Scouts or another club, or resume for college? Get on the list to help out with shelving, mailings, special events, and whatever else comes up. Scheduling varies based on the project. Individual longer-term special projects also may be arranged.

Homebound Delivery Service

The Library’s Homebound Delivery Service supplies library materials directly to those unable to come to the Library on their own due to health or mobility problems. Drivers are needed to make deliveries and pickups on a pre-arranged schedule.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is an independent 501(c)(3) volunteer organization that organizes book sales and other activities to raise funds to support Library programs and services. Volunteers are always needed to help out the weeks of the spring and fall used book sales, to sort incoming donated books on an ongoing basis, and to research and process items for our Internet book sales operation.
