Welcome to Wilton Library
If you're a girl in grades 6 - 12 and want to learn to create mobile apps, games and websites, join Girls Who Code. No experience necessary -- just enthusiasm and willingness to try new things! We're part of a national club that offers project-based activities in a fun and creative environment. This is an ongoing program where each week builds on skills learned in previous weeks.
We'll meet for twice a month on Sundays from September 15, 2016 to June 4, 2017 as follows: September 25; October 2 & 23; November 6 & 20; December 4 & 18; January 8 & 22; February 5 & 12, March 5 & 19; April 2 & 23; May 7 & 21; June 4.
Registration required. Supported by Girls Who Code.
Create fun or spooky Halloween decorations using our die cutter, the Cricut. Prefer to make a card or invite? No problem...we'll show you that instead! For 7th graders to adult and 6th graders accompanied by adults willing to learn too. Must have a valid CT Library card and signed Innovation Station Agreement Form. Space limited to 2 per session. Registration required.
Are you tired of repeating the same suggestions and requests with no change in results? Do you want to increase cooperation and reduce yelling and back talk? This six-week workshop is based on the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, an international best seller now in its thirtieth anniversary edition that is a favorite of parenting experts. The program, developed by the authors of the book, teaches valuable skills useful in any relationship, but particularly geared toward the parent/child relationship. This class uses exercises designed to increase an understanding of the adverse impact of many of our default parenting styles. Participants will learn alternative, more effective methods of interacting with children through lessons, role-play and practice. This workshop is based on the book by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. Dr. Bauerfeld is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, ADHD Coach, and Parenting Consultant with a private practice in Wilton, CT.
There is no fee for this program. You will be asked to purchase a workbook for $10. The workbook can be made available at no charge if needed; please speak to the facilitator. The workshop will run on Mondays from October 17 through December 5, no class October 31 or November 7. Registering for the first session registers the attendee for the 5 additional sessions.
Children ages 0-5 and their caregivers are invited to join a fun time of moving, grooving, jumping, shaking, singing and playing instruments. A great Monday morning work-out! No registration required. No sessions October 3 and 10.
Weekly drop-in for knitters and crocheters. Make new friends, get tips and share ideas while working on your own projects. New to stitching but want to give it a try? We have needles and yarn for you to test out. No registration required. No session October 10.

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.

Wilton Library is pleased to announce its “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” initiative that supports early literacy. The program encourages parents to read to their little ones receiving free books, stickers and certificates whenever the goals are reached. Sponsored by Cohen & Wolf, P.C. and Tiger Tales Publishing. And now children of all ages can get a Wilton Library card to call their very own – with no age restriction. Sign up for the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program at the Children’s Library desk.
