Thank You!
Yesterday, May 5, 2020, Wilton Library participated in Giving Tuesday Now - a day designated to come together to help our communities be strong, resilient, heal and move forward. Our community did just that for the benefit of Wilton Library. There was such wonderful participation and engagement among staff, family and friends of staff, Board of Trustees and community members--it was truly healing! 
We more than doubled our participation goal, and are so grateful for all who joined us in this one-day campaign to support Wilton Library. These funds make an immediate impact, supporting our valuable programs, services and collection materials.
