At Home With Wilton Library
December 2, 2020
A December to Remember
Make the most of December and close out this year of challenge with thoughtful celebrations. We've got books offering up all the Do-It-Yourself know-how you'll need to craft special gifts for everyone on your list. And celebrate December 6 -- the centennial of jazz giant Dave Brubeck. Join us in honoring his 100th birthday with a selection of Brubeck music and books. Add in an eclectic mix of programs, including virtual holiday recipe sharing, and you've got a December to remember at Wilton Library. Visit us virtually, in-person, or at the Drive Thru.

Your friends and family will agree -- you just can't beat handmade holiday presents.
Don't let your crafting skills (or lack thereof) stop you. Check out this selection of crafting books that will inspire you to make the perfect something for everyone on your list.
