Getting or Renewing a Ridgefield Library Card

Any Ridgefield resident is entitled to a free library card. You can complete the application for a library card online or in person during Library open hours. You will need to present proof of residency (driver’s license, utility bill with street address, etc.) at the Circulation Desk when picking up your new library card. New card registrants may choose from any of eight available designs, six of which include a keychain card. Apply for a new library card here.

There is a $1 fee for replacement of a lost card. Verification of identification will be required; a responsible parent or guardian must approve in person or writing the issuing of a replacement card to a minor.

Cards are valid for two years. If you have provided an email address, a reminder will be sent notifying you of the impending expiration. To renew out-of-date cards, you must come in to the Library and show proof of your Ridgefield address at the Circulation Desk. Check-out, renewal, and other transactions may be blocked if your card is expired or due to expire imminently.

Children through age 17 may have their own card, with the signature and proof of Ridgefield residency of a parent or legal guardian.
