Ridgefield Library Tributes Gift Program
Tribute gifts in memory or in honor of someone may be designated for use where needed most, or for a donation of $35 or more, a book or other item can be purchased and personalized with a bookplate listing the donor and honoree. The Library will make every effort to choose items in a format or subject area of your preference, subject to our Materials Selection Policy. You will receive a tax acknowledgement, and your honoree or the family of the memorialized individual will be sent a card notifying them of your donation.
Print a Tribute Gift form and send it in with your check.
Noreen L. Papa “Mothers: Live Your Life” Fund of the Ridgefield Library
Established at the Ridgefield Library in 2014 in partnership with her family and friends, the Mothers: Live Your Life fund honors Noreen L. Papa, a Ridgefield mom, library advocate, and early supporter of the Run Like a Mother 5K who died of colon cancer in 2013. Click here for information about the annual Run Like a Mother 5K, whose sponsors support this fund.
Contributions to this Fund support Library programs and collections dedicated to women’s health and wellness, specifically to educating mothers to take care of themselves so they can take care of others. Donations to the Fund may be dedicated to Noreen or made in honor or memory of another important woman in your life.
