  1.       Pick up a hot book (Preferably at the Wilton Public Library).  
  2.       Read the book.
          Write a short book review (Yep. That’s right. Kind of like a book report!).
          Repeat.

If you can complete this process twice you will receive a free Hot Reads for Cold Nights magnet.

Turn in your 3rd & 4th reviews and receive a free Hot Reads for Cold Nights ice scraper.

Complete the challenge with your 5th & 6th reviews and receive a beautiful Hot Reads for Cold Nights mug!

So, let’s do it!  Get reading!

Wilton Writer’s Workshop

Wilton Writer's WorkshopHere are  first participants in the Wilton Writer’s Workshop hosted by the Wilton Public Library. This six week session provided writers an opportunity to write their personal stories on an assigned topic and the group gathered weekly to review one another’s writing. Workshop participants each selected one piece from this session and have them provided at the library and the Monroe County History Room. These stories are available to the public and are intended to encourage others to write down their personal memoirs. The next six week session of the Writer’s Workshop will begin March 25th. Contact the library to participate. wiltonlibrary@wiltonlibrary.wrlsweb.org.
