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.

Each month the Cryptozoology Club will feature a different legendary beast. Kids in grades 3 - 6 will read about them, see film clips that MIGHT be real and talk about whether the creature really exists. January’s creature: BIGFOOT! Join the group as it journeys from Bluff Creek, CA to Connecticut's own Litchfield Hills on the trail of the U.S.'s most famous cryptid. Call it Sasquatch, Skunk Ape or Winsted Wildman, it's a beast with a rep as big as its shoe size. Kids will view film clips, listen to stories, weigh the evidence and decide when they should rely on what they see and read. Snacks will be served-- enough to satisfy any primate's appetite! Registration required, Grades 3-6.
