You may also download audiobooks from NetLibrary and Recorded Books. Call 203-762-3950 or visit online at wiltonlibrary.org for details.

Reference material is available in print and via the free Internet workstations. You may also do research at home, using the library’s Web site wiltonlibrary.org to access a number of databases. The Web site’s format and content was dramatically changed in the last year. The library’s business reference section also includes both print and electronic resources. Local and state history may be found in the Wilton History Room and on the Connecticut Shelf.

InfoAnytime is a 24/7 reference service to use when the library is closed. Call Mary Ann Mendola Franco at 203-762-3950, ext. 210, for details.

The librarians also research and produce custom databases of local information, such as The Wilton Bulletin Index, Wilton Obituaries Index, Wilton Business Directory, and Wilton Community Organizations Directory and Wilton Bulletin Online (from 2003), which allows full text searching. Librarians can help with any professional or personal research question.

The library offers copy machines, a fax machine, microfiche reader/printers, and a typewriter. Multiple computers with Internet access as well as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are available free for public use.
