Next time you are walking or driving by the Ridgefield Community Center, you’ll notice some new signs indicating that construction will begin soon on YOUR new, bigger, better library!
Our dream of a new library became a vision that we, as a community, supported (and continue to support!) in every way. Now, four years later, our new library is becoming very real.
As the current library relocates and construction begins, keep your eyes peeled here for news about library programs, fundraising events (yes, we still need money to make the dream a reality), and updates on the construction. You can also visit the Friends of the Library website: folridgefieldwa.com for current information. You can also join the Friends!
Thank you, Ridgefield and everyone who invested in this treasure of a community resource! And a HUGE thanks to the Ridgefield Community Center for providing us with the perfect site for the library.
You’ve probably heard the unofficial word that the Ridgefield Community Center is going to be converted into our new, bigger, modern Ridgefield Community Library.
Well, it’s not a rumor anymore! It’s official.
The Memorandum of Understanding among the Ridgefield Community Center, the FVRL Foundation and the Trustees of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District is signed, which allows the planning for the new Ridgefield Library to proceed.
Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen.
The thermometer on the sign outside the library has changed to reflect that the generous donation of the building qualifies for the matching grant through the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington. The building’s appraised value will be matched!
We gratefully thank the Ridgefield Community Center Association. And a big thanks to each and every one of you who have supported us and will continue to help us as we raise the much-needed funds to complete this valuable project for YOUR community!
This is just a simple and heartfelt thank you to all the good people supporting the Ridgefield Community Library.
Whether you are a member of the Friends of Ridgefield Community Library or an occasional volunteer,
someone who attends our events or donates money to fund our projects,
a public servant working behind the scenes to make sure the library has a central place in the life of the city or a private citizen who uses the library as a resource,
You make a difference! Thank you!
We thank you because you show us through your words and deeds that this library is important, important enough to invest your time and resources in.
The Friends of Ridgefield Community Library wish all of you a safe, fulfilling, enjoyable holiday season.
On Saturday, December 3rd, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, the Friends will be holding a Golden Elephant Sale in the Community Center as part of Ridgefield’s Hometown celebration.
What’s a Golden Elephant Sale? It’s a place for you to buy high-end, gently-used items at ridiculously reasonable prices. These treasures are perfect for your holiday gift-giving lists: high-class goods that are oh-so-kind to your budget. You’ll find the kind of items you would likely see in a nice vintage shop.
So come on by and buy, buy, buy!
Everything you buy will benefit the library!
The Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Ridgefield Lion’s Club was a swimming-in-syrup success! The Lions, the Friends, and several of Ridgefield’s Youth Groups served over 200 people. We raised over $1,100 ($270 in tips alone!).
Thank you to everyone who participated as workers and/or patrons. We appreciate your generosity more than you know. The new, bigger, better Ridgefield Library will become a reality because of the efforts and support of this fabulous community!
Also, the Friends of the Library usually hold our monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. This month we are NOT having a meeting, so please mark your calendars to come join us on April 13 at 6:30 in the library.
Hope to see you then!
