Home-Style Monday Edition
Who ever thought that we would be living in our homes 24 hours daily for weeks on end? If you're tired looking at the same bland walls or hunting through that closet in disarray, this issue is for you. Enjoy these ideas to update, revive and organize your spaces.
Get Inspired with Interior Design eBooks
As we shelter in place, the rooms we formerly spent few hours in have now become our primary habitats. That 'canvas tan' wall may not be as inspiring as it once was or perhaps a bookcase refresh might be in order. Check out these interior design eBooks for ideas and inspiration. They may be downloaded in the Libby by OverDrive app or viewed online on our OverDrive page.

Gifts to Wilton Library Make An Impact!
Wilton Library is here for you.
For more than 125 years, Wilton Library has been here for the community -- now more than ever, quickly adapting to meet the needs of our patrons. 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.
