At Home With Wilton Library
March 10, 2021
Marching Forward
It's been a year now since many of us pivoted to work from home, bake sourdough, and interact via Zoom. But March 2021 is looking brighter -- daylight saving time gives us more light on March 14th, and the vaccine rollout is giving us hope. We've also got St. Patrick's Day to celebrate as well as Women's History Month. Today we offer up eclectic volumes to honor both, as well as some fun and flirty Bridgerton-esque reads. Additionally, we have programs to keep you informed, enriched, inspired, and connected. Find what you need at Wilton Library.
Must-Read Memoirs Celebrating Women
March is Women’s History Month, a time when we can educate ourselves on historic moments women fought for and our progress thus far, along with celebrating women as a whole. And what better way to do that than reading some powerful memoirs written by women from all walks of life? Get started here.
