Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

The Library's holiday Book Sale in the gallery is a seasonal delight where bargains can be found - featuring a large array of PRISTINE books, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks suitable for gift-giving to all ages. As items are sold, new ones appear daily. All sales support the library. Sale opens at noon on November 30 and continues during regular library hours through January 2, 2017. Library closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Are you tired of repeating the same suggestions and requests with no change in results? Do you want to increase cooperation and reduce yelling and back talk? This six-week workshop is based on the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, an international best seller now in its thirtieth anniversary edition that is a favorite of parenting experts. The program, developed by the authors of the book, teaches valuable skills useful in any relationship, but particularly geared toward the parent/child relationship. This class uses exercises designed to increase an understanding of the adverse impact of many of our default parenting styles. Participants will learn alternative, more effective methods of interacting with children through lessons, role-play and practice. This workshop is based on the book by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. Dr. Bauerfeld is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, ADHD Coach, and Parenting Consultant with a private practice in Wilton, CT.

There is no fee for this program. You will be asked to purchase a workbook for $10. The workbook can be made available at no charge if needed; please speak to the facilitator. The workshop will run on Mondays from October 17 through December 5, no class October 31 or November 7. Registering for the first session registers the attendee for the 5 additional sessions.

In this one-on-one session, let us introduce you to our electronic embroidery machine and create a holiday apron as a gift or for yourself. $7 fee payable upon arrival. For 7th graders through adults and 6th grade students accompanied by adults who are willing to learn too. Must have a valid CT library card and signed Innovation Station Agreement Form. Please bring the completed form to the workshop. For a follow-up training session, please email innovation@wiltonlibrary.org.
