Letter: Beyond Words was beyond success

To the Editors:

Over 225 members of our community joined us in celebrating the Wilton Library at our annual benefit, Beyond Words. The event was a huge success thanks to the wonderful support of our patrons, donors, committee members, volunteers, sponsors, and staff. This was indeed an evening of everyone coming together — neighbors, friends and local businesses who gathered for a common cause.

Over $106,000 was raised to benefit the community through the library’s collections, programs, technology, and services. A heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone for helping Wilton Library continue as the center for discovery in the heart of the community.

A huge thank-you to all for their wonderful work in supporting the Wilton Library. We could not have done it without your help!
