There he is wailing about getting no satisfaction. Well, Mickey, Old Boy, try going to the Ridgefield Community Library. The staff there does everything in their power to make sure every customer leaves satisfied. And with a smile! You really should smile more, Mick.
The Friends of Ridgefield Community Library are hosting a Staff Appreciation Day and Reception on Tuesday, February 13 that is FREE and OPEN to EVERYONE.
The reception will be held at the library from 4 to 5 pm.
We will provide refreshments.
Whether you visit the library regularly or you haven’t been there yet, please join us in recognizing the hard work that these fine professionals do to bring a world of information to us each and every day.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the amazing staff, the Friends and others who, like you, treasure public libraries.
And spread the word! Bring a friend. The more, the merrier!
Did you hear about the free refreshments? Yup. And the chance to mingle? Yup. Wanna go? Heck, yes! Think they’ll notice we don’t have a library card? Heard it’s easy to get one… I’m game if you are. Hey! That’s not funny. Let’s just say it’s a date!

Did someone say they need me? Well, it’s about time! I was born ready, Mister! Whatcha want me to do? I’m great at digging stuff, but I’ve got many other talents. Sign me up! And I’ve got about thirty-seven others just like me raring to go. Uh oh. Really? You want GOLFERS, not gophers? Well, shucks. Nevermind.
Join us at Tri Mountain Golf Course Sunday, October 1 for the third annual FORE! Golf Tournament.
It’s a 1:00 pm scramble, which benefits the building fund for the new Ridgefield Library.
The cost is $85 and includes:
- a spaghetti dinner
- and more
Call 360-887-2160 to register your foursome for this exciting fundraiser.
Whoa! First, there might be music, but this foursome won’t be providing it. Second, they weren’t known for their putting skills. But, there are four of them, and that’s what we’re aiming for: as many sets of four golfers to take part in our fundraiser. If Paul and Ringo want to bring two of their pals to play (golf, not old hits), we’d be happy to let them, right?
Be part of the solution!
We accept credit cards.
As always, thanks so much for supporting YOUR public library now and in the future!

Okay. This isn’t the item up for auction. Maybe when we get our NEW LIBRARY built and if we have a little (or a lot) of energy left over for more fundraising, we could afford to buy this sleek little number so that one of our Ridgefield tots can jet around in space-aged style. But, for now, let’s get ourselves back down to good old Mother Earth, shall we, People?
Every month, the Friends auction off something special and wonderful in our never-ending quest to raise money for the library.
You have to check in regularly at the library to see what’s up on the auction block, what the current bid is, and if you are in the lead.
A brand-new, deluxe Scrabble board game with a Scrabble Dictionary and a beautiful wooden cribbage set will be available throughout the month of August as the Silent Auction item. Bidding starts August 1 (see the item and make your bid at the library). Don’t miss out on these wonderful additions to your game collection and the chance to support a GREAT cause. At the end of August, the highest bidder will be notified. Questions? Contact Tevis Laspa (360-600-0943)
It’s an easy, fun, and exciting way to support YOUR library AND get wonderful things for you or someone on your gift-giving list.
Silent auctions are great! Look what I got by being silent. It’s not just a ball. It’s a just-my-size, perfectly yellow, I’m-not-sharing ball.
Remember, proceeds from the Friends fundraisers will be used to support the Ridgefield Library Building Fund, as well as the programs and services provided by the Ridgefield Community Library.
As always, thank you for supporting YOUR public library!

Actually, we’re having a silent auction. Hopefully, YOU are having a cookout and need our first item up for bidding.
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 hot stuff!
Guaranteed purchase price of $30.00
Come into the library now to place your bid!
If you have questions about this item or if you have an item you think might be appropriate for a silent auction in the future, contact Tevis (360-887-3879 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Friends of the Ridgefield Library are SO excited about how supportive everyone in the community is when it comes to helping to build a new, bigger, better library! We think you’re great!
