Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

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. Bring dad too! Caregivers must be present. No registration required.

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 charge.

The Wilton League of Women Voters, Wilton Library Association, and GOOD Morning Wilton co-sponsor a forum to meet candidates for the Planning & Zoning Commission, one of three contested offices in the November municipal election. The forum follows a modified town hall format moderated by an out-of-town League moderator who will present questions submitted by the public to all candidates. Additional details may be found on the registration page. Registration suggested.

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.

Registration Filled.

Judson Scruton leads this 4-part Autumn Poetry Seminar Series exploring the poetry of islands. In keeping with Wilton Library’s focus on Cuba this fall with its Wilton Reads program, our poetry seminar will focus on Islands, both literal and metaphoric. From John Donne’s “No Man Is An Island” to Cuban-exile poet Richard Blanco’s “The Island Within,” and from Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, “Crusoe in England,” and “The Quaker Graveyard in Nantucket.” Additionally, we will discuss island related poems by Seamus Heaney, and Derek Walcott.

Judson Scruton, M.A (The Johns Hopkins University, The Writing Seminars, specializing in poetry), has taught creative writing and literature at prep schools and universities. He is currently an Adjunct Professor of English at Fairfield University.

Poetry packets available at front desk one week before the seminar begins. No charge for the program. Advance registration required. Register online or call 203-762-6334. See registration link for more program and speaker details.
