Wilton Public Library is happy to announce that we have new computers and not just any new computers but laptops! With laptops you will have the ability to check them out and take them anywhere in the library or on the grounds you would like. I know it is now winter and probably not the time you want to spend time working outside, but in nicer weather it is possible now. Laptops may not be removed from the library’s property though. But we are hoping to make it more flexible for you to use them in the way you would like to.

Plus, these new laptops are much faster than they were before and have access to the full web, all of the resources that come with having a Winding Rivers Library Card, and workspace flexibility. Frankly, I believe the ability to work where you are most comfortable; inside or outside, is key to raising our personal productivity.

Since this will create space inside the library, we are looking at creating a maker space, and I have a wish list of items to go in it. Do you have a wish list of things that Wilton Library had available to you? Please let us know in the comments or stop by and talk to us about what you’d like to see in the new maker space. We’d love to hear from you.
