Help! We Need Some Cookies! Help!

Help! We need some cookies! Help! Not just any cookies. H...e...l...p! We're just four fab blokes who could use some tasty biscuits to fatten us up a might.

Help! We need some cookies! Help! Not just any cookies. H…e…l…p! We’re just four fab blokes who could use some tasty biscuits to put some zip in our act, yeah, yeah, yeah.

The First Saturday in December (December 1) is Hometown Celebration in Ridgefield.

That means the Ridgefield Community Library will be abuzz with activity.

To keep everyone’s energy levels up, the Friends are serving a Smorgasborg of tasty delights (a.k.a. cookies and spiced cider) from 9 am to 3 pm in the library.

And lots of them!

YUMMY!

That’s where you come in.

We need volunteers to bring in a dozen or two or three of your favorite PACKAGED (store-bought) cookies to share with the public. 

Make sure you deliver your delectable decadences in their original packaging before 6:00 pm on Friday, November 30 so they will be available when the library opens for the festivities on Saturday.

We also need volunteers to help set up, serve, and clean up. Even an hour of your time will help us so much. And you’ll have fun. Remember, you’ll be standing behind a table filled with yumminess! But it won’t be as hectic or demanding as this:

Little+Free+Library=Wonderful!

Okay, it may not look like much now. But just wait until the actual super-sweet structure that high school students built and decorated is affixed to this pole. Then you’ll understand why we’re so excited!

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.

Word Words, Unite! I’ll admit it. When I sink my teeth into a good book, not even a squirrel distracts me. I found these books at a Little Free Library, and I’ll take them back so that some other critter can enjoy them just as soon as I’m finished devouring 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Um…I don’t think it’s going to be that high off the ground, People. Anyway, hope to see you there!

As always, thank you for your support of YOUR public library!
