Winter 2014 Reading Olympics
Friday, Jan. 31 through Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
You don’t need to put on ice skates and ear muffs to join Wilton Library’s Olympic Games. In celebration of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the library challenges young readers to finish two books within three weeks, or three books, or even five books! We will have our own Awards Ceremony on February 22. So ski, snowboard, or skate your way over to the Children’s Library and sign up! Read a lot, visit often, and fill in your reading log. For independent readers. Sponsored by the Coyle Family Young Readers Fund.
Atmospheric Landscape Paintings by William McCarthy
Friday, Feb. 1 through Saturday, March 1
Artist William McCarthy creates atmospheric landscapes entirely from memory and imagination. Using thumbnail sketches to inform and guide, the oil-based images spring forth with vibrancy and color harmony to create a sense of place in time with the ever changing atmosphere. A portion of the proceeds benefits the library.
Saturday, Feb. 1, 10 – noon.
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.
