Ridgewood Library closed for Mother’s and Father’s Days

Ridgewood NJ, Why does the Ridgewood Library have to close on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day? The BCCLS site doesn’t even list those days as library holidays, and they certainly are not. On the Ridgewood Library’s own website, it says May 14th/Sunday/MOTHER’S DAY and June 18th/Sunday/FATHER’S DAY (Maroons Soccer Tournament).” (Actually, it says “Maroon’s”–sadly illiterate for a library. There is only one Maroon?)

What’s the connection–the library has to close because it is ceding the entire parking lot to attendees at a sports event? Does everybody in town care about sports AT ALL? I assure you, they do not.

Here’s the link. It says 2016, but the listings on the page are correct for this year. Somebody failed to update the URL.
