From Monday June 28 to Saturday August 14 Tails and Tales – 2021 Welcome to the Wilton Library’s “Tails and Tales” Summer Reading Program for Teens and Tweens, June 28 – August 14, 2021. If you are entering Grades 6-12 in Fall 2021, then this is the place for you! It’s simple – all you need is a good book and a clock, watch or phone to track how much time you spend reading. Then update your Wandoo profile with the title of the book and the minutes read. Each time you complete 180 minutes of reading (3 hours), a ticket will be applied to that week’s drawing. If you are our lucky weekly winner, you will receive a $10 Wilton of Chamber Commerce gift certificate. The more you read, the better your chances of winning. At the end of the summer, all of those tickets will go back into the “jar,” and one person will walk away with a $100 Wilton Chamber of Commerce gift certificate. Supported by the John and Patricia Curran Teen Fund. To register, visit www.wiltonlibrary.org. Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road, Wilton; www.wiltonlibrary.org; 203-762-3950.
