Give Today - Wilton Library's 2017-2018 Annual Appeal ends June 30
Our fiscal year is quickly coming to a close on June 30th and we need you to help us reach our goal for our annual "Friends Campaign." We are $36,000 behind our goal this year and your support is essential. Did you know that 25% of the library's budget has to be raised each year through community fundraising efforts? It is with these resources that 100% of the books, DVDs, CDs and digital services can be purchased and made available for patrons like you to borrow or download. Funds raised benefit the entire community by sustaining the Library's collections, programs, technology and services. Click here to donate now or call Robin Axness, Development Director at 203-762-6323.
