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.
WHAT WE DO
Since its inception in 1980, Friends has provided the Ridgewood Public Library with vital funds that supplement the operating budget. These funds provide so much more than books and media!
Here are just a few of the programs supported by your donation:
HOW WE DO IT
The annual school-based Reading Marathon is held throughout the month of February for all Ridgewood students in preschool through grade 8 to raise funds for children and teen programming & books.
Held annually since 1990, the Author Luncheon has become a beloved community gathering and is a keystone fundraising event featuring a bestselling author, seated lunch, and silent auction. Previous guest authors have included Madeline Miller, Min Jin Lee, Jamie Ford, Lisa See, Harlan Coben, Mary Higgins Clark, and many more.
There are many ways to become involved with Friends and we are always looking for new volunteers with fresh ideas. Join our team and bring your expertise or simply your love of libraries. Attend one of our monthly meetings or email email@example.com for more info on available opportunities.
