Holiday happenings The library is a buzz this weekend with all sorts of holiday fun beginning with the Wilton Holiday Stroll set for Friday, Dec. 1, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The library will be part of the festivities with a warm fire, refreshments and creative gift-giving ideas. Beginning with the Holiday Book Sale in the gallery, smart shoppers can choose from an assortment of books, DVDs, and hundreds of classical, jazz, Latin and blues CDs. Many items are still shrink-wrapped. The sale continues through the month with inventory replaced on a regular basis by the library\u2019s hardworking book sale volunteer elves. The Giving Tree is another way to embrace gift giving and this time, it\u2019s for the library. Shoppers choose \u201cornaments\u201d from the tree that can be purchased for the library\u2019s various collections. The item can be marked with a bookplate in honor or in memory of someone. The \u201cUnhung Heroes\u201d art exhibition also continues through the month featuring artists who have not exhibited at the library before. Any of the more than 60 pieces could make a lovely gift. Should the weather be inclement for the Holiday Stroll, Santa will spend some quality time at the library receiving little kids for their holiday wishes. The Friends of the Library Holiday Party takes place on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 4 to 6. The library\u2019s trustees host this holiday get-together to say thanks to all those who have supported the library in one way or another. This is an adults-only gathering. Registration may be done online or by calling 203-762-6321.
