Apply for a Library Card

Wilton residents may apply for a Wilton Library card online or at our circulation desk. Please bring proof of residency with you (driver’s license, utility bill, credit card statement, automobile registration, etc.). There is no cost to get a Wilton Library card, but there is a $1.00 replacement fee for lost cards or to obtain a card with a different design.

Nonresidents may register their Connecticut hometown library card with us to borrow materials from Wilton Library. Please bring your library card (with expiration date) and ID with you to our Circulation Desk and we will be happy to register you with Wilton Library.

If you have any questions, please contact our Circulation Desk at 203-762-6334.

Renew an Item

Most items borrowed from the Wilton Library may be renewed twice for a time equal to the original loan period. The Library provides three convenient ways to extend your borrowing period:

  • Stop by the circulation desk and ask to renew your items. You needn't bring the items with you to renew them.
  • Phone the Library (203-762-3950) anytime during our regular hours and renew by phone.
  • Renew yourself through Patron Account in our online catalog, 24 hours a day.
