Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

We have a new embroidery machine -- the Janome Memory Craft 500E! If you've already learned how to embroider or monogram with our Singer Machine, then this is the session for you. We'll go over the features and capabilities of the Janome, so you can keep creating personalized items. Registration required. Class size limited. For 7th graders to adults and 6th graders accompanied by adults who are willing to learn too. Must have a valid CT library card and signed Innovation Station Agreement Form. Please bring the completed form to the workshop.

Bring your wonderful baby to this infant friendly program at the Wilton Library. We will sing and play and enjoy gentle stories geared for babies under 12 months old. This is an excellent forum to meet other new parents in the area. No registration, no fee. Caregivers must be present. Program runs for 10 weeks. No session October 12.

This program is a sharing time for 1 and 2 year-olds and their caregivers. The emphasis is on books, with some songs and toy time. No registration, no program fee. Program runs for 10 weeks. No session October 12.

Please join us for a screening of the award-winning feature film, No Letting Go. This poignant film honestly depicts the potentially devastating impacts of mental health disorders which affect 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 5 youth aged 13-18 (21.4%) in the United States every year.  Randi Silverman, the film's writer and producer will lead a Q&A session following the screening. No Letting Go is a compelling drama based on Ms. Silverman's family journey to understand and cope with the erratic behavior and emotional instability of their middle son, Tim.  The screening is sponsored by Wilton Youth Services, Wilton Library, Wilton Youth Council's Parent Connection and Laurel House. See the registration link for more details and link to the trailer.

Mother Goose on the Loose is a themed story time for children ages 6 months to 2 years.  Children will sing songs, listen to stories, move to music, and learn nursery rhymes.  Felt boards, puppets, instruments, and props will be used.  No fee.  

Please note: in an effort to create a small, consistent group experience, this program uses a lottery system for registration. Lottery registration forms are available at the Children's Library desk starting August 25 and must be returned by September 10. Patrons will be notified via email if they receive a spot. This is a 10-week program.

News:

Now the Wilton community has mental health information resources at the library through a partnership with Silver Hill Hospital.  The hospital designed twelve Mental Health “To-Go Kits” that can be checked out for three weeks just like a library book. The kits include books, CDs or DVDs and information sheets. The twelve topics covered are Alcoholism, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Chronic Pain, Depression, Eating Disorders, Opioid Addiction, Schizophrenia, Substance Abuse, Suicide Ideation, and Teen Stress.  Find Mental Health To Go Kits in the catalog
