At Home With Wilton Library
May 27, 2020
  • Gov. Lamont has announced June 20 as the start of reopening libraries in CT. Wilton Library is working with the Town of Wilton to comply with State directives and local guidelines. We hope to open our drive-thru window on June 22 while maintaining our robust digital and virtual offerings. We are looking forward to once again serving our patrons via the drive-thru window, located on Godfrey Place. Please watch for further announcements.
  • At present, Wilton Library remains closed as does our returns bin. All items have been automatically renewed and no late fees will be accruing. Need a Wilton Library card? Call 203-762-6334 to get one.
Please Support Our Annual Appeal
For over 125 years, Wilton Library has been here for the community and for you. But we are not a municipal public library. Approximately 25% of our budget must come from donations. We depend on your financial support to cover every program, service, and collection material we offer (including digital). So please act today. Our appeal for the annual friends campaign is digital now and it couldn't be easier to give. Please make a gift to support Wilton Library today.
