Welcome to Wilton Library

Events:

Join the Silver Club to learn new topics, read new books, make new friends, and to just have a good time! As a part of a Girl Scouts Silver Award, this book club will be run by four current 8th grade students: Kendra W, Sydney F, Lena O, and Grace H. This eight session course will meet once a week over Zoom and is offered for anyone in grades 5-7th. A variety of books will be offered and will be chosen every two weeks via a vote by our members. No materials will be needed for the first week but in later weeks a copy (either online or a hardcopy) of the chosen book will be needed. Members will be added to a google classroom where information, extra activities, and more will be available. Registration required. Zoom links will be emailed shortly before the start of each program. Questions? Email 

Kids going into grades K - 6 are invited to sign-up for our "Tails and Tales" themed Summer Library Adventure 2021 from June 14 - August 28.  This year will be special - we will not only focus on reading, but also provide ideas for fun, educational activities for the whole family.  We are excited to offer this innovative program for our community!

For the reading portion of the Summer Adventure we will be doing our Read and Bead reward system. Children will use Wandoo Reader on our website to log their reading by keeping track of the minutes they spend with books, ebooks, audiobooks, eaudio books, magazines, and other online reading.  Each 100 minutes will equal five beads for their necklaces.  At different intervals children will receive special beads and brag tags too! All prizes will be "surprise" prizes distributed at Children's Library desk. 

In addition to the reading portion of the program we will have challenges for children to complete.  New challenges will be available every Monday and Thursday, and the kids have all summer to complete them for special beads, brag tags and other small prizes.  Supported by an anonymous sponsor.

To kick off the Wilton Library Summer Reading Program, the theme is "Tails and Tales" we are starting with a virtual Pet Contest! Children of all ages will able to show their pets on a Zoom program. Each child will have an opportunity to talk about their pet and why they are special to their family. Registration required, the Zoom Link will be sent the morning of the program.

Children ages 3-4 and their caregivers are invited to our very first in-person story time since last year! Story time will be in the Reference area Courtyard. Kids will enjoy stories, songs, puppets, and rhymes. Bring a blanket to reserve your space.  Masks MUST be worn at all times by adults and children. Social distancing must be maintained, therefore space is limited. Registration is required for each session. Questions? Email aszabo@wiltonlibrary.org
