Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood library is asking patrons to flood the April 24th meeting of the Village Council to promote its virtues .
“What does the Ridgewood Library mean to you? We invite you to share your thoughts and experiences about how RPL has enhanced your life during the public portion of the Village Council Meeting on Wednesday, April 24 @ 7:30pm.”
While we are sold on Libraries in general and think the Ridgewood Library does a stand up job , recent proposals by the Library Board to expand and enhance the facilities while deemphasizing books makes us very nervous.
Would we be presumptuous to assume the Library is looking to demonstrate good will while it lobbies for a big renovation?
“Why is the Ridgewood Library important to you?
We celebrate National Library Week each April and this year we would like to invite all interested residents to share a few words about what the Ridgewood Library means to you during the public portion of the April 24 Village Council Meeting.
