Wilton, CT - Kids will be growing their love of reading with Wilton Library’s “Plant the Seed and Read!” summer reading program which kicks off on Thursday, June 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Ambler Farm (257 Hurlbutt Street, Wilton). “The farm is a great place to hold our kick off,” said Andrea Falkner, Head of the Children’s Library at Wilton Library. “Given the theme of this year’s summer reading program, what better place is there to see things grow and thrive than on a farm? Children will be able to register for the program, go on hayrides, visit the animals, and tour the garden,” continued Ms. Falkner. Another delight according to Ms. Falkner is learning about the library’s involvement with the Heifer International program. For each book read by a child who has registered for the summer reading program, the library will donate funds to Heifer International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger and poverty and caring for the Earth.

In addition to reading books this summer, children have many more treats in store. Drop-in Crafts are Mondays from July 11 through Aug. 15; Drop-in Story Times take place on Tuesdays for children ages 1 – 6, from July 5 to Aug. 9, at various times depending on ages; Wednesday Wanderings are planned visits at local farms; Thrilling Thursdays, from July 7 through Aug. 18, promise all sorts of surprises from musical entertainment to live animals, from puppets to Daisy the Pig, from square dancing to bees. Fun Friday Flicks begin July 8 and continue through Aug. 12, with movies for little kids in the morning and big kids in the afternoon, with films such as “Tangled” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”—a cool way to spend a hot summer afternoon. Registration is required for all of the Thrilling Thursdays events.

To register for any of the children’s programs, visit and click on the tab marked “Children” in the blue banner. The summer reading program events are sponsored by the Coyle Family Young Readers Fund and the Betsy and Jesse Fink Foundation for Wilton Library’s Environmental Initiative.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road in the heart of Wilton Center. For information, directions or registration, visit or call 203-762-3950, ext. 217.
