At Home With Wilton Library
July 29, 2020
All materials taken out prior to our building closing on March 18 are due back this Friday, July 31. Please return these materials to the blue Returns Bin in the library parking lot. Fines for these materials will be assessed after July 31.
What to Do Wednesday
Today we offer up Librarian Picks from our multi-talented Technical Services Manager, Carolyn; nonfiction selections that read like fiction; a fun art workshop for teens; poetry and recipe sharing; stitch time for all levels; and more. There's always something to do, At Home with Wilton Library.
Who better than a librarian to ask for reading recommendations? Today we ask Carolyn, Wilton Library's Technical Services Manager, what books she likes to read and why. Her answer:
  • Gripping thrillers and humorous contemporary romances that take me out of “real life”
  • Any fiction genre with strong, relatable characters that are richly fleshed out
  • Cookbooks (particularly plant-powered) and knitting pattern books for inspiration
  • Nonfiction on current events & health/relationships for personal development
  • Inspirational memoirs by people I admire
These titles may be reserved in the  catalog , downloaded in the  Libby by OverDrive app  or viewed online on our  OverDrive page .
