Books and a Blanket:

A children's book reading series

May 20th & June 17th

Co-hosted by the Wilton Land Conservation Trust, Wilton Library, and Wilton Go Green

Immerse yourself in nature and join us for the books and a blanket series.

Bring your blanket and enjoy a relaxing story, some arts and crafts, and a hands-on environmental learning experience.

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 the cultural and intellectual center of Wilton: 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.
