At Home With Wilton Library
April 3, 2020
While our physical Wilton Library space remains closed, we continue to offer you helpful information as well as selections from our digital library. Digital Library access is provided to Wilton Library cardholders that have a residency in Wilton. If you are a non-Wilton resident, please check with your hometown library for these services. Need a Wilton Library card? Call 203-762-6334 to get one.
TGIF Edition!
It's the kick-off to the weekend! Here's some information and ideas to make your weekend time at home fun, productive and entertaining.
Learn Something New -- Get Crafty With Crochet and Knitting eBooks
It's a great time to learn a new hobby or skill. How about learning to crochet or knit? According to a study done at the University of Wollongong Australia, crocheting can yield major mental health benefits, including improved focus and memory, and relief from depression and anxiety. Check out these eBooks below. To download any of these titles, first download the free Libby by OverDrive app on your phone or tablet . You will need your Wilton Library card number to set up your account.
Explore Your Family Tree
Take this extra time at home to research your genealogy. From now through April 30th, Ancestry.com will be available to you from home. The library's subscription allows free access to unparalleled genealogical information from the United States and the United Kingdom. All you need is your Wilton Library card.  Get started with Ancestry.com here.
Get Gardening
During stressful times, nature can be a peaceful refuge. And coinciding with this at-home period, we’re also at the start of something a little brighter — gardening season. Learn more about gardening with a selection from this list of gardening eBooks available for download with your Wilton Library card. For some localized information, check out The Basics of Planting and Growing Vegetables, courtesy of the Wilton Garden Club.
