Unfortunately, the Friends of the Ridgewood Library 31st Annual Author Luncheon on April 1st has been postponed in light of precautions surrounding COVID-19.  

We do not have a rescheduled date at this time due to the uncertainty of knowing when it will be safe to gather in large groups again.  

Your ticket purchase will be honored for the rescheduled date. However, if you would like a refund, please email: 


If you cannot attend the rescheduled date once announced, you will have the option to receive a refund or to make the ticket price a donation to Friends of the Ridgewood Library. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.  


Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. In this time of social distancing, we are sad to cancel, but look forward to gathering with our friends again soon. 


The mission of Friends of the Ridgewood Library is to raise funds outside the library’s operating budget in order to provide cultural and educational programming and enhance its comprehensive collections.
