Curbside Service Update


We are still here for you and we can’t wait to begin offering full service. In the meantime, Ridgway Library is committed to providing our patrons safe access to physical materials through a curbside pickup service.

Our online resources are available. Please call or email us if you are having any issues accessing your digital accounts.

WiFi is available on the new east patio and on the south patio for patrons that have their own devices. Please enjoy our comfy outdoor furniture and be sure to social distance.

Library outside Book Return is open.
