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.

Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence Exhibition/Reception: Kathy Liao

Monday, June 17, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
June brings Kathy Liao to the Weir Farm artist in residency program.  Kathy’s creativity is fueled by a sense of play and an excitement for the unique visual language of paint. Through direct observation, her work is developed through an exploration of lines, shapes, and color through the visceral act of painting, scraping and collaging materials. Having spent her childhood in Taiwan, she is strongly influenced by her dual Chinese and Japanese heritage. Her work is a medium for her to revisit and gain new understanding from her immigration experience.  See registration link for more details about the artist.  Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library.  Registration suggested.
