Welcoming Our Community Since 1903

The E. W. Morris Memorial Library Building that forms the historic front wing of the Ridgefield Library opened its doors for the first time on June 22, 1903. After 120 years, the Morris Building continues to welcome Ridgefield residents to the Library.  Members of the community are invited to share their memories of the Library and its place in their lives through a new collaborative online platform, The Morris Building 120th Anniversary Community Collection.  Create and share your materials for inclusion in the Collection — the submission process is free and easy!  Submissions can include pictures, old Library cards, programs, flyers, maps, posters and other visual memorabilia.  Submission of original written material is also encouraged.  Contact the Adult Services Department for more information at [email protected]

Do you know the little boy in this historic photograph of the Morris Building?  Please email the Library if you have any information!
