Welcome to Wilton Library

Space limited to 3 students per session.  Registration required. 

Children in grades 3 through 5 are invited to join Wilton Library’s new Nutmeg book club. The Nutmeg Book Award is a program designed for kids in the state of Connecticut.  Each year children have the opportunity to read ten carefully chosen books and then vote for their favorite in April.  There are two levels for children: Elementary (grades 2-4) and Intermediate (grades 4-6).  In this club kids can choose to read one of the assigned monthly books or all two or three.  We will come together to discuss the books, have snacks, play games, and do other fun book-related activities.  This month's book choices are The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin (Elem.), Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke (Elem.), and Shadow by Michael Morpurgo (Inter.) This program is a partnership between Wilton Library and Cider Mill School.  Registration required; no fee.

Join Wilton Library for 2 and 3-year old story time. Children and their caregivers will sing songs, listen to stories, and enjoy playtime together while building literacy and social skills. No registration, no fee.

For 3 and 4 year-olds with caregivers. By interacting with stories, singing songs and acting out finger plays and rhymes, children in this program gain pre-reading skills and learn how to participate in a group setting. No registration, no fee.

Looking for something good to read next? Bring a friend and join the Book Buzz conversation moderated by Lauren McLaughlin and Melissa Baker, two of Wilton Library’s knowledgeable librarians. Participants are encouraged to come and chat about their most recent favorite reads or just listen to what others recommend.  Pick up new pre-publication books when available. Hear about upcoming books being released and be the first to reserve them at the library. Get the inside scoop on upcoming author visits.  No charge. Registration suggested especially during the winter months.
