Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

Children ages 2 and 3 years old and their caregivers will sing songs, listen to stories, and enjoy playtime together while building literacy and social skills. No registration, no fee. This program runs for ten weeks. No program charge. No registration required.

The Poets Laureate Anthology brings together a sampling of the works of the 43 “poets laureate” of the United States from the inception of the position in 1937 until the book’s publication in 2010. Collected and edited by Elizabeth Hun Schmidt, the former poetry editor of The New York Times Book Review, the volume includes brief introductions to each of the poets as well as an inviting foreword by poet Billy Collins who held the position from 2001 to 2003. In its review, Booklist said that “the nearly 500 poems map a great republic of the imagination.” For this year’s discussion, we will be reading Frost’s “The Silken Tent”, Eberhart’s “Coast of Maine”, Untermeyer’s “Upon Washington Bridge”, and Jacobsen’s “Hourglass”.

Discussion Leader - Judson Scruton

Call the Senior Center for details and to register at (203) 834-6240. Comstock Community Center, 180 School Road, Wilton.

Children ages 9-11 are invited to a writers' workshop to hear fun stories and then create their own. We will explore story elements and have fun with creative exercises. Registration required. This is a six part program, so when registering for this program the child will automatically be enrolled in all 6 sessions. Caretakers must remain in the building.

Join us for a special speaker event on genetics and cancer - all are welcome. Post-treatment breast cancer survivors are invited to join in this monthly support group led by Nina Marino, LCSW - the next regular meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 18th. Nina was the Clinical Director for 15 years of the former Breast Cancer Survival Center and is a breast cancer survivor. No charge. Please email Nina at Cancersurvival2@aol.com with any questions. Registration highly encouraged.

September brings Deborah Pierce Bonnell to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. As an artist focused on the landscape, trees and plants, Bonnell is tantalized at the thought of spending weeks in the meadows of Weir Farm, and plans to reinterpret scenes that CT impressionists found there 100 years ago. She enjoys painting in oil on canvas and watercolor, but also makes monoprints, and paints in encaustics, a form of pigmented wax.  Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.

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
