The first Ridgefield Park event will be on Friday-25-September.

Children will receive a craft to complete at home.
Also on Tuesday-22-September The Bogota Public Library will host a National Voter Registration Day event. This is part of a national wide effort to register thousands of voters. Every eligible American voter should exercise his or her right to be heard at the ballot box, and library workers will be outside the library encouraging Bogotians to get registered.
The Bogota Public Library is now in cooperation with "Creative Bug" that presents a series of art & craft video classes taught by design experts and artists. Anyone wishing to access this service must log-in with a valid Library Card from the Bogota Library.
