Then email or take those images home with you on a thumb-drive to create event mementos.

Join Wilton Library this summer for our Water, Wind & World Summer Reading Program.  Children can register on Wandoo Reader, an online reading log to keep track of their reading anywhere they go as long as they have an internet connection.  By reading, logging, and completing challenges, kids will be eligible for benchmark prizes throughout the summer.  The Water, Wind & World program stimulates kids’ imaginations with wonderful stories and fun activities while learning about ecosystems, animals, and resources in the world they live in. Drop-in story times, drop-in activities, large-group enrichment and entertainment programs and animal visits are just some of the events planned though August 25.  Think of us as your free stay-at-home summer camp experience. Registration begins June 23.

Most of the programs are supported by the Amadeo Family. Reading prizes are sponsored by the following local businesses: The Pastry Hideaway, Scoops, Subway and the Toy Chest.

Come to Wilton Library and see the wonders of the Night Sky in the daytime! Mike Francis, a former lecturer at the Charles Hayden Planetarium at Boston's Museum of Science will be returning with his StarLab. This is an inflatable planetarium dome that children and adults can go into and see a remarkably realistic night sky, while Mike Francis talks about the constellations. There will be multiple sessions throughout the day. Registration required.  Caregivers should accompany ages Pre-K to K; grades 1 and up caregivers must remain in the building. Supported by the Amadeo Family.

Children who are not yet entering Kindergarten are invited to participate in our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program for the summer and beyond. During the summer, children will receive a special bonus prize for visiting the library each week. Make sure children say ‘hello’ to a Children's Librarian and sign up for Wilton Library cards in their names! In person registration required. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at Wilton Library is sponsored by Tiger Tales, and Cohen and Wolf. Call the Children’s Library for details at 203-762-6336.
