Poetry in Motion—Where I Stand
Sunday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 20.
Poetry in Motion, in its eighth year, is Wilton Library’s annual poetry program for teens in grades 7 – 12. This year’s theme is Where I Stand. This can be interpreted figuratively or literally. Students are invited to submit original poems (serious or humorous; short or long). Approximately 35 poems will be selected by a student board for a two-performance event in March 2014 at the library. Poems will be paired with art, music and/or dance for the live performances. Poems can be performed by the student poet or by someone else. Submit poems as a Word document to email@example.com by October 20, 2013. Call Susan Lauricella at 203-762-3950, ext. 243 for information.
Wilton Library’s Shredding Day for the Community

Wilton Library is holding a shredding day fundraiser for the library in its parking lot. Minimum fee is $10; $15 for ½ of 65 gal container; $30 to fill full 65 gal container. Shredding services donated by City Confidential, a division of City Carting. Only cash or checks will be accepted.
Tales to Tails
Saturday, Sept. 28, 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.
