Campaign for the New Ridgefield Library

Do It Once. Do It Right. Do It Now.


Technology Advisory Board | Technology in the New Library | Technology and the Future of Libraries

Technology will be integrated into every aspect of the Library, enabling faster, more effective and global access to Library resources and emerging information delivery systems. Free, secure wireless and plentiful workstations will accommodate demand, and a technology resource center will support individual and group instruction.
