Understanding Homelessness in NH- virtual program 2/5 5PM
NHHC program

Homelessness has become a problem for many communities in New Hampshire. It is a preventable problem but most of the strategies communities have used to prevent and address it haven’t worked well. In this presentation, Dr. Vissing will explore the history of homelessness and commonly used approaches to understand it and do something about it. Participants in this virtual presentation will be encouraged to share perspectives, questions and ideas.Click the link below to register.

A note from the Library Director
To our wonderful library community:

We have rolled back to curbside services only, as of Wednesday, November 19.  This was a hard decision to make, but an important one.  On the advice of the Wilton Health Officer, and based on the current infections in and around Wilton, I decided it was time to protect the staff, library users, and the community at large.

We just loved having people come into the library since we started allowing appointments and browsing in August. We will miss our great conversations and catching up with all our faithful friends. 

But curbside service preserves our most important offerings, from a safe distance.
You can call, email, reserve through the catalog, or text and we will be happy to gather your requests to deliver in the parking lot.  You can still call for reading advice, requests for books to be purchased, and our Inter-Library Loan system is still available.  The staff will even put together book bundles, based on your reading preferences. Just ask!

Remember we have not only books, but movies, audiobooks, and magazines. We have our new Chromebooks which can now be checked out for a week at a time, or for brief use on the grounds or in your car using the library WIFI. You can print to the library printer, and we will bring your copies to you.

And speaking of WIFI, our expanded WIFI  reaches from the Police Department to the library!  We upgraded with the help of a CARES Act grant, so you can sit at the park and still have WIFI! 

All our virtual services remain in place, with downloadable ebooks, audiobooks, movies, music, graphic novels and comics.  Go to our two downloadable apps, Libby and Hoopla, to checkout downloadables.  Story times will continue on Thursday mornings on Facebook Live, and other children's events will be publicized on Facebook and this website.

The staff is still here and ready to help out with whatever you need. Do not hesitate to call with questions or requests.  We really want to hear from you!

Stay healthy and have a great Thanksgiving,
Pat Fickett, Library Director

With NH experiencing more cases of Covid 19, we all need to know what to do if exposed.  Here's the CDC guidance on quarantine. There are some very helpful graphics about how long quarantine should last in different situations.
