SPECIAL EVENT!  Library Staff Appreciation Day – Tuesday, April 9 – “Thank You” Reception 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm – Ridgefield Community Library

National Library Week (April 7 – 13) is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. 

Tuesday, April 9th is National Library Workers Day, and the Friends of Ridgefield Community Library are hosting an informal reception in the library from 4 pm to 5:30 pm to thank and celebrate our amazing and dedicated library staff.  Come in, enjoy some light refreshments, and express your appreciation to Sean, Lois and Anne-Laure, and welcome Kathleen, the newest member of the library team!

It’s a great time to show these remarkable people just how much they mean to you. And bring your children!

That’s right! We young un’s know how to zazz up a party. Well, at least we used ta in the “good ole days.”

What was I Supposed to Remember?

Petey the Pup: Is dis a test? Dang! I knew we shoulda jus stayed home an’ done chores like we was s’posed ta.

This is not a test. It’s a simple reminder that the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser is coming up THIS Saturday (March 23) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the current library building (210 N Main Ave).

Gee, thanks for the scoop! Once this hits the wires with MY byline, maybe the boss will take me off of the Lonely Hearts column.

Friends are welcome to come to our Preview Sale from 9:00 to 10:00 am. Not a Friend? No worries; join at the door!

Really?

Yes, really!

The fundraiser is all about selling fabric that has been sorted, measured and tagged (at MUST-GO prices). All you need to do is come and BUY, BUY, BUY! For more information about the sale, click here.

Questions? Email or call Donna (360-887-2700).

Hope to see you there!

Oh, yes! I want to reprise my role as court jester (seen here in my favorite college photo). Alas, this costume no longer fits my middle-aged rolls. I know the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser will have just what I need.

We have all kinds of FUNdraisers and activities planned so that your community library continues to be the “go to” place for curious, inquisitive, creative people of all ages.

The Friends of the Library is the group that meets once a month to kick around ideas, plan events, and talk “library.”

We changed the time of our meeting from 6:30 PM on the 2nd Wednesday of each month to 1:00 AM on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

Please come and join us. We could all use more friends, right?

We are a warm and cuddly group of book lovers. Really.
