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.

June brings Sarah Goetz to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. At Weir Farm, Sarah will edit the video for a multi-channel video installation 'words taken right out of your mouth/words put in your mouth,' taking inspiration from the eerily similar phrasings of the two idioms. Shooting with a small camera in her mouth, Goetz has been collecting video of the awkward intimacy of literally putting text-objects (made of ice) in the mouth of another, and of taking text-objects (made of salt, chocolate, etc.) out of the mouth of another. She will focus on how these mouth-text exchanges create oral/written-word conversations when facing each other in multichannel video, including the acts of listening, interruptions, awkward pauses, and external interruptions. Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.
