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.
