Welcome to Wilton Library


June brings Dorothy Lorenze to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Dorothy's focus is “painting stuff to look like stuff,” with the aim to capture the essence of what makes a subject interesting. So, working in the classical style of traditional oils, her paintings are contemporary realism - rendering the details of translucency, reflection and texture - to feature the 'personality' of the subject. Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.

This is a two-day babysitting workshop for students ages 11-15 and is conducted by a certified Red Cross Babysitting Trainer. Upon completion of the course, everyone will receive a Red Cross babysitting certification. Cost is $70 which includes the course text, first aid pack, LED flashlight, and drawstring bag. Payment due before class. To register, call the teen department at 203-762-6342. Once placed on the list, please send a check in the amount of $70 made out to Wilton Library to hold the spot.

For children of all ages and their families. Come watch charming mermaids, fairies, pirates, and spacemen come to life on a sketchbook. Everyone who attends will leave with a quick sketch made on the spot. Be sure to bring your imagination and have a fun time watching the creations. This program is being offered by high school graduate Emma Keating.  Emma is a graduating senior at Wilton High School. Next year she will be studying film at Purchase College. She creates her own animated movies by drawing thousands of individual pictures. These frames add up to make a full story. Her animated short 'Saving Me' has won several awards including: Scholastic Gold Key, Juan Castillo Best Film in Connecticut, and The New Canaan New Age Film Festival Best in Animation. No registration, no fee.

Have you already been introduced to our embroidery machine, but need more time before being certified? If so, this is the session for you! Limited space. Registration required.

For a fascinating and educational program come to Wilton Library and see Christine Peyreigne's wonderful birds of prey. She will use the opportunity to teach children about the dangers these birds face in the wild and the things we can do to help them. Registration required, for grades K and up.  Supported by the Amadeo Family.
