Question: Is it possible to have too much access to too many free books?
Answer: Is that a trick question?
If you’re like us (and if you’re reading this, you probably are), there’s no such thing as too many books or too many places to find them.
Here’s some great news for all you book-lovers out there!
The Friends of Ridgefield Community Library has arranged for a Little Free Library to be installed near the old oak tree on S. Hillhurst Road. The nearest cross street is South Nighthawk Road.
Question: What is a Little Free Library?
Answer: Good question! It’s two things.
- It refers to a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Click here to learn all about the organization, to see where in the world little free libraries are located, and to find out how YOU could build and sponsor one.
- It also refers to the structure itself. Little Free Libraries come in many shapes and sizes, but they share one thing in common: anyone may contribute or take books (but you don’t have to contribute books—we have a “Steward” who will make sure there are always plenty of books in our Little Free Library!). The free and open exchange of books is designed to build trusting, supportive community of life-long learners.
There are roughly 30 of these unique Little Free Libraries around Clark County. Ours was built and decorated by students from the high school!
The Ridgefield Friends of the Library invite you to the grand opening ceremony on
Saturday, June 17th at 10 am.
A short dedication will be followed by light refreshments. Please come and join our celebration!
Bring a book… take a book… or come and have a cookie! Just be a part of this wonderful community.
As always, thank you for your support of YOUR public library!
