Wilton Library Summer Reading Program Registration

Now through Aug. 16
The Pages through the Ages Summer Reading Program is now online!

Patrons can use our new summer reader program, Evanced, to register and log their summer reading.   Prize coupons can be printed and brought to the library for redemption.  Some highlights of the online program are: flexibility by being able to log-on whenever and wherever throughout the summer; convenience of keeping track of reading online and ability to print lists easily (teachers love to see what the kids read over the summer); attractive graphics are engaging and help encourage participation; on-demand access allows vacationing patrons to participate, too.  The online program can be accessed from internet-capable computers, laptops, iPads and more. Call the Children’s Library for more information at 203-762-3950, ext. 217.

Author Talk: Turney Duff – The Buy Side

Thursday, June 13, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
The Buy Side: A Wall Street Trader’s Tale of Spectacular Excess shows vividly — and sometimes shockingly — the day-time rewards and night-time temptations of making a living on the Street. Former trader Turney Duff’s true account is a high-adrenaline journey into a culture where drugs, sex, and millions in trading commissions are never enough. Turney Duff began working on Wall Street in 1994, and his career included stints at Morgan Stanley, the Galleon Group, Argus Partners, and J.L. Berkowitz. See registration link for more details.  Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books. Registration encouraged.
