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.

Heading to college in the fall or sometime in the next few years? Michael Robin, a certified self-defense instructor, leads a fun and informative program on tips and techniques to prevent you from becoming a “target.”  He has taught at the United Nations and on television and worked with groups ranging from Brownie troops to giant corporations.  This unique program is based on Michael’s 15 years of listening to teenagers’ first-hand accounts of what works and what doesn’t. You’ll learn what to look and listen for, how to project confidence, and when to use your voice or move your feet! Recommended for high school students and recent high school graduates. Registration suggested.
