Wilton Library Lines: Drive right through, job help, thrillers
The drive-thru window on Godfrey Place will be open for business again beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, June 22, and continuing Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The library will be closed Sundays in the summer.
Patrons can begin putting items on hold now and when the items are available, they will receive notifications via email, text or phone. The blue return bin is open every day and people can bring their items back now. Due dates have been extended through July 31 and overdue fees will be waived through July 31 for all items checked out prior to the library’s closing in March.
Returned items will not be accepted at the drive-thru window because they have to be disinfected and quarantined for 72 hours. By not accepting returns at the drive-thru, patrons and staff will know that they are handling materials through the drawer that are good to go. Book donations are not able to be accepted at this time.
The building remains closed to the public and library volunteers. The Digital Library is always open.
