Okay, fine. So maybe our “step” isn’t quite as big-hoopla-showy and ooh-la-la memorable as the moon landing, but it’s jump-up-and-down, gotta-spread-the-word fabulous. At least we think so.
Next time you are walking or driving by the Ridgefield Community Center, you’ll notice some new signs indicating that construction will begin soon on YOUR new, bigger, better library!
We just saw the signs. On the library, that is. Great news! We’re so excited. And, if you don’t mind our saying so, these are pretty giant steps, right?
Our dream of a new library became a vision that we, as a community, supported (and continue to support!) in every way. Now, four years later, our new library is becoming very real.
Only four years? Really? I could have sworn it was longer. My hair was was jet-black and I had eyelashes when we started this fundraising campaign!
As the current library relocates and construction begins, keep your eyes peeled here for news about library programs, fundraising events (yes, we still need money to make the dream a reality), and updates on the construction. You can also visit the Friends of the Library website: folridgefieldwa.com for current information. You can also join the Friends!
I’m begging you, People, use these nifty information sources available to you, otherwise, I’m going to have to dust this old monster off, hope she works and blast out news alerts … or tobacco smoke. I can’t remember what this thing does …
Thank you, Ridgefield and everyone who invested in this treasure of a community resource! And a HUGE thanks to the Ridgefield Community Center for providing us with the perfect site for the library.
