What’s Red or White and Makes you Glow all Over?

What? Red? White? Glow? I can’t even figure out where I am and why I’m wearing this funny hat! I don’t even play the saxophone…

Give up?

Okay.

It’s wine!

And if you walk, skip, march, saunter, jog, or simply go to the Ridgefield Community Library, you will find TWO gift baskets that the Friends of the Library are offering for their October silent auction. Bid on one basket or bid on both!

What’s inside these beautifully-wrapped baskets you should get for yourself or as a gift for someone you REALLY like?

They each have two bottles of wine, chocolate, a wine-related book (stories more than wine info), glasses, and a few additional goodies. One basket features red wine; the other features white wine. Each bottle comes from one of four of Ridgefield’s wineries.

Are you feeling glowy yet?

Remember, ALL proceeds of the auction will be used to support the Ridgefield Library Building Fund and other programs and services provided by the Ridgefield Community Library.

Cheers to everyone who supports the library! But hold the wine. Give me more of that chocolate in that basket!

 

Let’s Party…Again!

It’s about dog-gone time we had another party in the library! I’ve been waiting with baited doggie breath to let Jessica know what a tail-wagging’ friendly place Ridgefield is. Plus, I hear some drool-worthy kibble and bits will be there for everyone to nibble on! And don’t worry, you don’t have to dress as fancy-pants as I do; most of you can’t pull off flashy the way I can.

On Friday, April 13, the Friends of Ridgefield Community Library are hosting a Welcome Reception for Jessica, the newest addition to our team of spectacular librarians! The reception will be held from 4 to 5 pm at the library and is open to the public

 

In keeping with tradition, there will be yummy light refreshments, lots of great friends and probably more laughs than you’ll find in your typical library. Let’s give Jessica a good old Ridgefield Welcome by having lots of you come down to meet her and make her feel at home!

This is Jessica. If you want to learn more about her than her name, you’ll have to come to the library to ask her!

Hope to see you there!

As you know, the Friends of the Ridgefield Library are actively raising money to help fund a new library in Ridgefield. We are starting a silent auction of items that have been donated to the library. See the items via photos here or in the library.

You have to go to the library to leave your bid, so don’t wait if you see something you want!

Auctions will last four weeks unless someone agrees to buy the item at the “Guaranteed Purchase Price.”

Every time a new item comes up, we will post it here!

The item can be picked up from the library immediately after the close of the auction.

The first item in this fundraiser: 6 bags of Kingsford Original Charcoal. Each bag weighs 7.7 lb, for a total of approx. 45 lb. Estimated retail price $6.50/bag, or about $39.00.

Think of all the yummy food you can cook with this stuff!
