Register for October's Books and a Blanket - HALLOWEEN

The Wilton Land Conservation Trust, Wilton Library, and Wilton Go Green have come together to offer a unique and immersive book reading experience. Together, we've created an opportunity for families to venture outside, explore nature, listen to stories, and make an upcycled craft. As partners, we're elevating young minds within beautiful landscapes.


The Wilton Land Conservation Trust is a community-focused nonprofit organization that conserves land, protects biodiversity, enhances ecosystems, and builds community.


The Wilton Library is Wilton's cultural and intellectual center: informing, enriching, connecting, and inspiring the Wilton community.


Wilton Go Green is committed to engaging, educating, and inspiring Wilton residents to embrace a lifestyle of environmental sustainability.
