Kids ages 8 and up are invited to join Wilton Library’s Minecraft Computer Club. A server for Fairfield County has been set up with a virtual world where the Minecraft community in Wilton can meet and the club welcomes the enthusiasts. Please note: Minecraft is a subscription-based, online game. Players must bring their own laptop and create their own account. Handheld devices are not recommended because they run a Minecraft app that does not work with the same server. To be added to the Fairfield County server you must visit the Children’s Desk with a valid library card to be registered. Caretakers must sign in their child with staff member. If the child is not present and signed in by 10:10, the place may be given to a waitlisted child. Caretakers must remain in the building. Registration required; no fee.

The Children’s Library will print your 3D designs for you! Just design a 3D object at home or on a library computer, sign up for an appointment (one child per slot), and a staff member will print your STL file on our Makerbot Replicator 2. Caretakers may wish to sign their child up for several time slots in a row if they anticipate a large project or for time to adjust the design during trial printings. Caretakers must read through and sign a Regulations and Usage Agreement Form before their child will be allowed to use the 3D printer. No fee. Original designs only. Ages 8-12.
