Wilton Library

Wilton Library’s Giving Tree is an annual tradition that stands bright in the gallery each year at this time.  Essentially the tree is a Wish List of items/materials/programs that the library would like to bring into the collection or provide to the community. Patrons simply pick the item on the special “ornament,” bring it to the circulation desk and pay for it. The item can be purchased in honor or in memory of someone, or to commemorate a special occasion. A lovely gift card is given to the purchaser, who in turn can give it to the person or family being honored. Where possible, a bookplate will be placed on the selected item to highlight the honoree. The item chosen for each category is a representation of what is currently on the tree. Items may go quickly but there are many choices in each category if the first request is not available.

Items under $50 are represented by the $30 book, Chasing Light: Michelle Obama through the Lens of a White House Photographer by Amanda Lucidon.

Shoppers also are reminded of Wilton Library’s Holiday Book Sale in which bargains in all price ranges can be found on a daily basis. Both the Giving Tree and Holiday Book Sale run through Jan. 3, 2018.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Rd.
