about & donations

The Ridgewood Public Library offers a variety of diverse programming and book collections for all ages.  We owe our programming possibilities and collection development to the generosity of the Friends of the Ridgewood Library and the donations that fund our mission to serve the community. The annual Reading Marathon is a fundraiser held throughout February for all Ridgewood students in preschool through grade 8.
