Gifts to Wilton Library Make An Impact!
Wilton Library is here for you -- now more than ever. Wilton Library has quickly adapted to meet the needs of our community. Usage of our digital resources has more than doubled. We are creating new programs, hosting virtual book talks and providing continuous ways to expand learning, conversation and connection. 

For over 125 years,Wilton Library has been here for the community -- our value can be measured and relied upon. But we cannot do it alone, we need your help. We are not a public/municipal library. Wilton Library depends upon the community to support us by making gifts -- approximately 25% of our budget must come from donations. These donations support programs, services and every item in our collection (including digital). 

So please act today. Our appeal for the annual friends campaign is digital now and it couldn't be easier to give. Your support makes an immediate impact. Please make a gift to support Wilton Library today.
