Snakes and Flu Shots–What Do They Have in Common?

Two great–but very different–programs are being offered by the Wilton Library.

On Saturday, March 1 there will be a Flu Shot Clinic at the Library from 10 a.m. to noon. Flu shots will be available to anyone age six years and older. People under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. No appointment is needed, and attendees will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Organizers have asked that anyone who attends wear sleeves that roll up easily.

The cost is $40 payable by cash or check. Medicare Part B, Anthem and Aetna also will be accepted as payment–insurance cards need to be presented. The clinic is sponsored by Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County.

On Monday, March 3 the Library is hosting Riverside Reptiles Returns!, from 4- 5 p.m.. Explore the wonderful world of reptiles and amphibians in this engaging program. On hand will be several various animals from these two similar, yet different groups of creatures. Learn about their natural history and the importance of their conservation.

Attendees will have a chance to pet a lizard, stare into the eyes of a huge toad, and touch a giant python. The program is for children in Grades K and up, and registration is required. The event is sponsored by the Coyle Family Young Readers Fund.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road. For more information, visit the Library website or call 203.762.3950.
