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.

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.”

Hang on! While I’ve got you, let me remind you of some events that are coming up really quickly. I know, I know. Tom, the cat who happens to my hubby, says I’m always putting my paw in where it doesn’t belong, but I know purrfectly well that we call can use a little scratch on the backside to remind us of what’s happening in the sandbox. Am I right?

 

Just a quick reminder:

Friday, April 13th, 4-5 pm at the library: Welcome reception for our new librarian, Jessica, hosted by the Friends. Light refreshments served. Open to the public.

Saturday, April 14th, 11 am-1:30 pm in the large room at the Community Center: Public Forum about the possible location of the new library hosted by the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District.

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!
