Hundreds of people use the Ridgefield Library every day without realizing all of the amazing things that little plastic card can do. The staff is charged with encouraging kids to pick up a book, to organize groups like Robotics Club, to hold book signings and writers workshops, and more. Now they’re celebrating all that they do, with Love Your Library Day.
On October 1, 2016 the Ridgefield Library is throwing a townwide shindig to raise money and awareness for its programs. Leading up to the event you may begin to see signs popping up around town and in local businesses featuring the LYL logo. Main Street will be alive with the love of learning, featuring book signings, author readings, and a scavenger hunt. The event will also feature a performance by the Story Pirates, who will do theatrical readings.
“Our goal is to involve the entire community so that everyone comes to appreciate the library,” says development director Laureen Bubniak. In the last year the Children’s Library offered 620 programs, which were attended by over 12,000 children. The Adult Education department created programs geared toward education, art, and health & wellness. The library has also expanded its technological resources and began to offer classes in robotics, 3D printing, and coding.
