Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

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.

Join us for our Basic Computers class which will serve as the introduction to the topics you need to know and be comfortable with in order to get the most out of our slate of upcoming technology classes which will begin in September.  Topics covered in this session include saving files, Internet browsers, email, and printing.  Class limited to 6 students and registration is required.

Wilton Library’s annual program for teens in grades 7-12 is once again starting and we want your poetry! We're looking for original poems (serious or humorous; short or long) addressing this year's theme, “Inside Out.” What is Inside Out? Perhaps it's the face you show the world while hiding what's inside. It could be that his shirt is inside out or she knows the city inside out. Or maybe it's just that you loved the movie 'Inside Out!' It's all up to your interpretation.  Approximately 30 poems will be selected for a two-performance event in March 2016 at the library. Poems will be paired with art and possibly music or song. So start the creative juices flowing! Submissions accepted now through October 31, 2015. Please send as a Word document to teenpoetry@wiltonlibrary.org.  Questions? Call 203-762-3950, ext. 243. This program is sponsored by Wilton Library with funding from generous donors.

In this one-on-one session, let us introduce you to our electronic sewing machine and embroider or monogram a tea towel. For ages 13-113 and students entering 6th & 7th grades.  Must have a valid CT Library card and signed Innovation Station Agreement form.  Please bring the completed form to the workshop. Space limited to 1 student per session.  Registration required. 

Come join Wilton Library’s new book group dedicated to 'food literature!' This month's book is Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl.  Pamela Lillis, a nutritional health coach, avid reader, and lover of food lit, will moderate the discussion.  No charge.  Registration recommended.  Book selections through January 2016.
