Free Books!

The Wilton Library is giving away remaining Book Sale books for free on Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m..

Wilton Library’s Gigantic Book Sale was a huge success thanks to all the smart shoppers, but this year there are still too many items remaining that will cost money to remove. Everyone is invited to come take away as many free books as they can on Saturday, and help out Wilton Library.

Red Rooster Pub is Opening

Here’s something to crow about–after several weeks of renovation, Portofino Restaurant‘s transformation to Red Rooster Pub is complete, and diners will be welcomed back starting this evening. Wilton has seen the most visible change so far, a white exterior that’s gone to a deeper grey with a bright red door, but now folks will get to see the inside, and more importantly, check out the menu.

Red Rooster Pub is located at 10 Center St., in Wilton Center’s Old Post Office Square.
