And you think you’ve been busy…We’ve been on the phone trying to keep one step ahead of ourselves in our sole mission to raise money for a new library.

The Friends of the Ridgefield Library have been busy planning events to raise much-needed money for YOUR new library.

This week, there are TWO, count ’em, TWO events:

  1. that will be fun for the whole family.
  2. that you definitely won’t want to miss.
  3. that will help you AND the library at the same time.
What's not to love? Let's get support both of these events, okay?

GIANT Rummage Sale for a Mega-Great Cause!

I don't know about you, but I'm always amazed by what I find when I start my Spring Cleaning.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always amazed by what I find when I start my Spring Cleaning.

Spring is here and that means out with the old and…Golly, now what do I do with all this stuff?

Lucky for you that we have the perfect solution to your Spring Cleaning woes: you pile up what you don’t want anymore and we’ll take it away as a donation to our GIANT Rummage Sale to support the new Ridgefield Library. We are working with Liz Jansen of Battle Ground to coordinate the fundraiser.

She (unlike me) knows what she’s doing in the rummage sale department.

This was my expression the last time anyone merely mentioned me having a garage sale at my house. Trust me, we should leave these things to professionals.
