At Home With Wilton Library
July 22, 2020
What to Do Wednesday
Whatever you're doing this week, include Wilton Library in your plans. Our Drive-Thru is open; our digital library is available 24/7; and we've got Zooming programs for all ages. Today we offer up cool reads set in chill places; iPhone Photography classes; foreign language tutorials and magazines; crafting and more. There's always something to do, At Home with Wilton Library.

And if your day needs brightening, WATCH THIS. Produced by Wilton High School students, this virtual choir/orchestra consists of 50+ uber-talented students, teachers, and alumni from throughout the Wilton school district.
Think Cool Thoughts... and Read Them Too
We're in the midst of the dog days of summer. Take some chill time for yourself and enjoy these wintry-themed reads set in cool weather locales. Some may be reserved in the catalog and picked up at the drive-thru and others can be downloaded in the Libby by OverDrive app or viewed online on our OverDrive page.
