Please support the Annual Friends Campaign
Your gift to the  Annual Friends Campaign enables us to provide the programs, services, collections, and technology that make Wilton Library the center for enrichment in our community. Roughly 25 cents of every dollar of our budget needs to come from private donations. These donations alone fund our collection materials, programs, and services. We are not a municipal library, so our budget is not funded entirely through tax support  We must count on the generosity of the community to keep the level of programming, services and collection content high.  Please make your tax-deductible donation here today. Thank you for your support!
CT Poetry Society Workshop
Saturday, December 21 @2pm
Please join us for the next CT Poetry Society workshop. All that's required is the willingness to share some poetry that you have written by reading it aloud to the group. To facilitate discussion, space is limited to just 15 attendees.  More info & register
Dreidel Days
Tuesday, December 17 from 4-6pm
The menorah might be the best known symbol of Hanukkah, but the dreidel is the most fun! Temple B'nai Chaim's Rabbi Rachel Bearman and Director of Lifelong Learning Karin Beitel invite the community to join them in the Brubeck Room for Dreidel Days, an interactive Hanukkah program where people of all ages will learn, play, and celebrate the season. People of all faith backgrounds are welcome. Drop-in; families are welcome. Suggested for grades K through adults.  More info
