Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

Please join us for a screening of the award-winning feature film, No Letting Go. This poignant film honestly depicts the potentially devastating impacts of mental health disorders which affect 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 5 youth aged 13-18 (21.4%) in the United States every year.  Randi Silverman, the film's writer and producer will lead a Q&A session following the screening. No Letting Go is a compelling drama based on Ms. Silverman's family journey to understand and cope with the erratic behavior and emotional instability of their middle son, Tim.  The screening is sponsored by Wilton Youth Services, Wilton Library, Wilton Youth Council's Parent Connection and Laurel House. See the registration link for more details and link to the trailer.

The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence. The carefully constructed program stimulates thought-provoking discussion about relationships; a topic important to every young person’s life. Audiences are clearly moved by the story of a young woman who warmly tells us of her relationship that begins as young love full of passion and promise and ends in tragedy.

The Yellow Dress play is developed and produced by Deana's Educational Theater (DET). DET acts to prevent relationship violence by developing and producing comprehensive educational theater programs on relationship violence for grades K-12, colleges, the military, and communities around the United States and abroad.

Mature Content: Recommended for ages 13 and older. This program is co-sponsored by Wilton Teen PeaceWorks, Wilton Domestic Violence Task Force and Wilton Library. No charge. Registration highly recommended.
