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.
