Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence. The carefully constructed program stimulates thought-provoking discussion about relationships; a topic important to every young person’s life. Audiences are clearly moved by the story of a young woman who warmly tells us of her relationship that begins as young love full of passion and promise and ends in tragedy.

The Yellow Dress play is developed and produced by Deana's Educational Theater (DET). DET acts to prevent relationship violence by developing and producing comprehensive educational theater programs on relationship violence for grades K-12, colleges, the military, and communities around the United States and abroad.

Mature Content: Recommended for ages 13 and older. This program is co-sponsored by Wilton Teen PeaceWorks, Wilton Domestic Violence Task Force and Wilton Library. No charge. Registration highly recommended. 

In the this one-on-one session, let us introduce you to our electronic embroidery machine and monogram a tea towel, apron, baby bib or burp cloth. Aprons available for $7. All other items are $5. 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. For a follow-up training session, please email innovation@wiltonlibrary.org.

The Baby Signs® Program teaches caregivers and children from 6 months of age to the toddler stage signs for everyday activities so they can communicate before the child can speak fluently.  Each workshop session focuses on one everyday activity. The workshop sessions will focus on Mealtime, Bedtime, Bathtime and Getting Dressed.  The signs are learned through activities, songs, and a book.  Every participant will go home with a handout.  There will be four workshop programs.  Please register for each session separately.  Ages 6 mos. to toddlers with caregivers.  Registration required; no fee.

Everyone will participate in this interactive game to solve an absurd puzzle. There are no screens, game boards, dice or cards: only our collective minds. Afterward we will design a simple game together. No registration, no fee. For children in grades 1-5.

Kids ages 8 and up are invited to join Wilton Library’s Minecraft Computer Club. A server for Fairfield County has been set up with a virtual world where the Minecraft community in Wilton can meet and the club welcomes the enthusiasts. Please note: Minecraft is a subscription-based, online game. Players must bring their own laptop and create their own account. Handheld devices are not recommended because they run a Minecraft app that does not work with the same server. To be added to the Fairfield County server you must visit the Children’s Desk with a valid library card to be registered. Caretakers must sign in their child with staff member. If the child is not present and signed in by 10:10, the place may be given to a waitlisted child. Caretakers must remain in the building. Registration required; no fee.

News:
