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.

Without friends, our 2021 programming will not be possible.

These are just a few of the programs supported by your donation:

  • The Reel Voices Documentary Film Festival

  • The Sunday Performance Series

  • On Book dramatic reading events

  • Lectures and Cultural Events

  • English as a Second Language Services

• Museum passes to: Storm King, Guggenheim, MOMA, The Frick, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Intrepid, Museum of the City of New York, Newark Museum of Art and Morris Museum.

The Friends of the Ridgewood Library 31st Annual Author Luncheon has been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

The 2020 Author Luncheon has been rescheduled for next year with the same author, Madeline Miller.  The new date will be Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 11am at Seasons in Washington Township.   

As for your 2020 ticket purchase, we are providing two options.  We will gladly refund your ticket, or we will accept your ticket purchase as a donation to Friends of the Ridgewood Library.  Please let us know which you would prefer at your earliest convenience by emailing friends@ridgewoodlibrary.org.  If we do not hear from you by Friday, May 22nd, we will assume you would like to donate your purchase so we can close out our accounting.   


Tickets for next year's Author Luncheon will go on sale next February.  We are truly disappointed that we had to cancel this year's event. Here's hoping for a speedy and effective vaccine, and a successful 2021 Author Luncheon!
