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.

Tales to TailsTales to Tails

Saturday, June 22, 11 – noon.
ROAR’s (Ridgefield Operation Animal Rescue) Therapy Dog Program will be bringing therapy dogs to the library for children to read to them.  The use of trained therapy dogs in reading programs can result in children who feel comfortable reading out loud, read more often, attempt more difficult books, and actually look forward to reading. Children must read independently to participate in this program.  Registration is required.
