Don’t know about you, but it’s been a LONG time since I’ve been this flexible. But … we’ve been waiting a LONG time to get the official word about our new library’s home, too. So, let’s shimmy, shake, and swing in celebration! And turn up your heating pad to the “Yup, I acted like a young-un’ again” setting.

You’ve probably heard the unofficial word that the Ridgefield Community Center is going to be converted into our new, bigger, modern Ridgefield Community Library.

Yup! Even I’ve heard that rumor.

Well, it’s not a rumor anymore! It’s official.

The Memorandum of Understanding among the Ridgefield Community Center, the FVRL Foundation and the Trustees of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District is signed, which allows the planning for the new Ridgefield Library to proceed.

This means we can get serious about building the library because we have a site.

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen.

The thermometer on the sign outside the library has changed to reflect that the generous donation of the building qualifies for the matching grant through the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington. The building’s appraised value will be matched!

Woohoo! Yippee! Hurrah! Whoop whoop! Huzza! Yahoo! [Insert your preferred exclamation of joyful excitement.]
