Happy Spring to our Ridgway Library Patrons,

I hope everyone is enjoying the longer, warmer days of springtime. In February and March, the library hosted our 1st Adult Bingo Challenge. We appreciated everyone who signed up and gave it a try. Congratulations to 11 patrons who made BINGO BLACKOUTS and everyone else who enjoyed reading and listening to new genres. Turn in your BINGO sheets with any amount completed to the front desk for a participation prize during the month of April.

As we gear up for spring time, the library staff and volunteers are busy processing seed packets for the Seed Library for you to sign out and plant in your gardens. We hosted a seed class earlier this spring and another class called ‘How to grow wildflowers in your garden’ will be led by local author Mary Menz on May 11th. If you are interested click here to learn more.

The library is conducting a community survey between April 11th-30th to receive your feedback. Please follow the link to receive more information and take the survey.
