The Wilton Library Association has received a bequest of $215,000 from the Daniel Edward Offutt, III Private Foundation Trust, which will be used to enhance the library’s Cornerstone Endowment. The library’s board of trustees voted at a meeting on Sept. 26 to use the funds for that purpose.
“The library’s mission is to be the cultural and intellectual center for the community — informing, enriching, connecting and inspiring our community. This generous contribution will lay the foundation for future programming at the library,” Elaine Tai-Lauria, executive director of the library, said in a statement. “We are moved by the generosity of Mr. Offutt and will be sharing the benefits of this gift with the community through our programming in the years ahead.”
