Welcome to Kids @ Ridgefield Park Library!
Welcome to the children’s department where our goal is to provide a safe, inviting space for children from babies through sixth grade to explore everything the library has to offer. We strive to offer something for everyone. We have board books, picture books, easy readers,fiction and non-fiction books that cover a wide range of interests. Magazines, DVD's, music CDs, books in Spanish and Korean and the very popular and growing shelf of video games available for borrowing. If your child would like to learn another language, we have materials available to assist them including the popular Muzzy brand. A great way help your child become a lifelong reader is to use the library, take books home and let the child see that it is important to you. A wide range of parent/caretaker and teacher books are also available.
