September

Welcome back to school- come relax and do homework at the library!

 

Story Circle- OUTSIDE  

https://www.facebook.com/wiltonlibrarynh

Thursday mornings at 10 am will be OUTSIDE on the library grounds as long as the weather cooperates.  In September we will begin learning “All About Fall” through stories, songs and a craft.  As always,  all ages are welcome.  On days that are too cold or wet for Story Circle outside, we will move inside to the Picture Book Room. 

Science Club

Science club will meet at 4pm on September 20th in the Wilton Collaborative Space with special guest Dr Andrea from Kimball Physics. We’ll be focused on the potential energy we use to launch small projectiles with our home-made catapults!  Want to see if your aim is good? Anyone from grade 1-5 with a parent or adult is welcome to join the fun.  While you’re there, add your name to our email list for future events.

Stories? Comics? Songs? Love To Write?

September 1 starts the month off right with the Writer’s Group. We’ll be meeting every other Thursday after school to play with writing prompts, writing challenges, and to share our writing with the group. We are a supportive community of all ages and writing abilities who want to become better writers through practice and the respectful exchange of ideas.  Call the library for the exact time and location ( sometimes there’s free pizza- ask about that, too).

Sheldrick Forest Tree Hugger Hike

Late September, early October is the perfect time to go for a hike in an old growth forest.  Use our guided signs to identify trees and learn some fun forest facts.  This program is currently being developed, check back here for more information.
