At Home With Wilton Library
June 5, 2020
Gov. Lamont has announced June 20 as the start of reopening libraries in CT. Wilton Library is working with the Town of Wilton to comply with State directives and local guidelines. We hope to open our drive-thru window on June 22 while maintaining our robust digital and virtual offerings.  We are looking forward to once again serving our patrons via the drive-thru window, located on Godfrey Place. Please watch for further announcements, including when you can start bringing your items back.
At present, the Wilton Library building remains closed as does our returns bin. All items have been automatically renewed and no late fees will be accruing.

Bon appétit and buen provecho!
