Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

Children in grades K and up are invited to join this weekly Garden Club.  Throughout the spring, summer, and fall we will plan, plant, tend, and eat fruits and vegetables in our raised-bed garden.  During the month of April we will meet to plan our garden and prepare for springtime planting.  This is a fun activity for the whole family!  Please contact the head of the Children's Library, Andrea Falkner, for more information and to sign up for the program: afalkner@wiltonlibrary.org or 203-762-3950, ext. 225

Wilton Library’s Innovation Day will showcase the work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Math) or the DIY (Do-It-Yourself) movement.  People will be able to see demonstrations, presentations, workshops, and exhibitions. No registration required; no fee.

Teens in grades 7-11, join Wilton Library’s Young Makers program, part of the national Young Makers Club, which was started in 2010 as a collaboration between Make, Pixar, and Exploratorium. Makers comprise a community of creative and technical people who help one another bring ideas to life. The Maker movement is all about innovation, invention, imagination and creativity. Maker clubs are growing all over the country and the world in spaces brimming with enthusiasm, passion, encouragement and collaboration.

Be part of our community and work with mentors in our Innovation Station to design and create an open-ended project culminating in the opportunity to share and exhibit at a showcase event at the end of May. Participants will be introduced to 3D printing, soldering, Arduino, coding, electronic sewing and other tinkering tools with the goal of creating their own self-directed projects. Projects might include electronic wearables, interactive games, furniture, electronic gadgets, motorized design, light-up jewelry, musical instruments, etc.

We encourage any teen from 7th-11th grade who is interested in tinkering, learning and creating to join us. Register for the first session on January 28th to sign up.
