Catalog & Collections
The Bibliomation Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) is your portal to the nearly 115,000 print and media holdings of the Ridgefield Library, along with digital collections and resource- sharing opportunities. Traditional library materials such as picture books and bestselling novels are joined by audiobooks in an array of emerging formats, a wide selection of topical and general interest periodicals, large print books, documentary and entertainment DVDs and even Kill-a-Watt electricity use monitors!
Accessible remotely anytime, anywhere, the OPAC unleashes possibilities barely hinted at in the old-fashioned card catalog. Not finding what you need in our local collection? Spread your search across the state with one easy click.

As of May 15, 2015, the iCONN statewide catalog (also known as reQuest) is being eliminated. A new version of this service is in development and should be up and running sometime in the fall.
Lack of this resource means that acquiring material from other libraries may take longer than usual, and we may not be able to fulfill all requests. Book clubs: Please allow extra time for processing of your requests for multiple copies for your group.
