One Village One Book

Boys in BoatThis summer, the Ridgewood Public Library Foundation is giving the town something to think about and talk about together. They have invited the Ridgewood community to read one book, the same book: The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. This experience will allow people to connect through a shared reading experience and engage in conversations with friends and neighbors. The Boys in the Boat tell the story of nine Americans and their epic quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Throughout the summer, the Library will be hosting book groups and programs to support the Ridgewood Library Foundation’s initiative. Please check this site for all upcoming event details.
