Join the Ridgefield Library Guardian Society. 

To help secure the future of our beloved institution, we invite you to consider membership in the Ridgefield Library Guardian Society each year. To rise to the challenge of meeting the increasing and ever more diverse needs of the community, we rely on the steadfast commitment of private donors who understand the enduring value of libraries in our society.

Guardian Society donors are individuals, families, and organizations who believe in the Ridgefield Library and are committed to its ongoing success. With an annual financial contribution of $1,000 or more, each donor helps to uphold the Library—our programs, resources, and presence in the town of Ridgefield.

The Guardian Society consists of several levels of annual giving, starting at $1,000:

Chairman’s Circle $10,000 and above

President’s Circle $5,000 – $9,999

Director’s Circle $2,500 – $4,999

Benefactor’s Circle $1,000 – $2,499
