The Ridgefield Library offers easy access to information about the collections of over 60 other Connecticut public libraries. Additionally, we are able to provide online access to the holdings of other libraries beyond our consortium, so we can expand our reach to the 169 towns in Connecticut and to many schools and colleges as well.

When local resources fail, our ILL specialist seeks out sources for your special requests across the country.

deliverIT CT Interlibrary Delivery Service


The statewide inter-library delivery service operated by the Connecticut State Library is being re-vamped. During this transition time period, you may experience delays in fulfillment of your request. 

Ridgefield Library staff members are happy to help you at any time to obtain desired items as quickly as possible. Please see below for alternatives or ask for our assistance!

  • You may elect to travel to another library, in a neighboring community or elsewhere across the state, to pick up a book from their building through the borrowIT CT service. To take advantage of this privilege, you must bring with you an unexpired full-size Ridgefield Library card (not the keychain version). Ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance. Our staff can guide you in locating and confirming availability.
  • Staff will also be happy to help you find alternatives, such as digital copies of some titles, or discussion titles available in our Book Club Corner.
