Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

New this Summer! Wilton Library Readers' professional book discussion leader Susan Boyar will discuss six short stories published in The New Yorker magazine over six consecutive weeks. Each Wednesday's meeting will discuss the previous week’s story. The story for this week is Silk Brocade by Tessa Hadley. The current issue of The New Yorker is available in the Reading Room for in-library use, or download it through Zinio or OverDrive.

Try out some fun, simple STEM projects. On two Wednesdays in July (7/8 & 7/29) and two in August (8/5 & 8/12) we'll be working with LEDs, motors, soldering equipment and more. Sign up for one or all sessions.  For students entering grades 7-12. Registration required. Must have a signed Innovation Station Agreement Form. Sponsored by the Amadeo Family Fund.

Special for the Wilton Library! Meet some of the scientists who studied electricity and hear their (often very strange) stories -- Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Ben Franklin and Alessandro Volta. You'll see shocking demonstrations of how electricity is created, stored and used, from glowing lights to a 4-cylinder engine! Supported by the Amadeo Family. Grades 1 and up. Registration required; no charge.

Part of “Everything STEMs from Reading” summer reading program for children.

Wilton Library will show Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves Fairytale Land. 45 minutes. No registration required; no fee. Caregivers must stay with children under 8, and remain in the building for children 8-12.
