Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

This program is a sharing time for 1 and 2 year-olds and their caregivers. The emphasis is on books, with some songs and toy time. No registration, no program 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.

Teens entering grades 6-12 come decorate flower pots with paints, decoupage, ceramics, and more. Plant seeds and watch them grow throughout the summer. Space limited. Registration required.  Sponsored by the John & Patricia Curran Teen Fund.

Children entering 3rd, 4th and 5th grades can come to Wilton Library to learn computer science and programming using Code.org’s online tutorials as well as instructor-led “unplugged” activities. In this program, students will learn problem solving and team work in a hands-on, often kinesthetic approach that makes use of physical manipulatives to model computational concepts.  Every Tuesday session will include an “unplugged” activity and an introduction to a corresponding computer coding activity.  Every Thursday session (also 4 – 4:45 p.m.), students will have an opportunity to work independently and at their own pace through various coding problems and video tutorials. See the registration link for information about Computer Science and Code.org.  

Week 1, July 7: This session will include an introduction and overview of Code.org as well as an unplugged activity. Parents/caregivers are required to stay for this session in order to learn more about Code.org and how your child can use it at home or in the library.  Unplugged Activity: Graph Paper Programming--students write an algorithm (a set of instructions) using predefined commands to direct their classmates to reproduce a drawing.  After logging onto to Code.org, students will write programs that get a character through a maze. They’ll understand the importance of sequence in the programs they write.

Supported by the Amadeo Family, registration required for each session; no fee. For children entering grades 3, 4 and 5; program runs through Aug. 4.
