Due to staffing shortages, the library may be closed at times this week ( May 24-28) during regular business hours. Changes will be posted here and on Facebook.
Story Circle- OUTSIDE
Starting in May, weather permitting, our Thursday mornings at 10 am will be OUTSIDE on the library grounds. On days when the weather does not cooperate, we will have Story Circle inside, so you can STILL come to the library! If there is a question, call to confirm. As always, all ages are welcome.
Wander Through Wilton on Mother’s Day Weekend ( Sat. May 7)
Of COURSE we want to see you while you wander about town. Look for a giant mother’s day card that we’ll create together and learn how to make a tissue paper flower with Ms. Boo. Let’s hope it’s a beautiful day to have some photo ops with mom!

April Hike-You Haiku
April is poetry month, so we’re planning a challenge for all ages where you hike and write some haiku poetry. To join in the fun, stop by or call or email Ms. Boo for an instruction packet. From April 1st through April 30th, you can take our hiking haiku challenge and share your experience with us at the library. Each “Hike-You Haiku” sheet you fill out will be worth one raffle ticket and entered into a drawing for a prize.e You can turn in a total of 4 sheets ( that’s one hike a week!) so lace up your boots, get outside, and let nature inspire and entertain you. All ages are welcome, children can get writing help from an adult but their words must be their own. Go for a haiku hike-you!
