ANNUAL REPORT 2010-11

2010-11<br />

Letter from the President and Executive Director<br />

Dear Friends,<br />

The past year has been one of<br />

continuing challenge but also<br />

tremendous opportunity for the<br />

W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>. Though our budget for<br />

the year included no increase in the<br />

Town Grant, not only was the <strong>Library</strong><br />

able to uphold its high standards of<br />

service to the community, but it was<br />

able also to improve and innovate<br />

through new and exciting collaborations.<br />

Thanks to gen erous individuals<br />

and partnering organizations in the<br />

area, the <strong>Library</strong> continued to be a well<br />

maintained and regarded center of<br />

our community, a hub of support and<br />

inspiration in these trying times.<br />

The pages that follow in this Annual<br />

Report detail the specifics of both programs<br />

the <strong>Library</strong> provided and support<br />

that it received during the year.<br />

What they may not adequately convey<br />

is the amazing spirit of the place in the<br />

face of adversity. Faced with a Town<br />

Grant (which has funded 75% of the<br />

<strong>Library</strong>’s operations in recent years)<br />

that included no increase over 2009-10,<br />

staff salaries were held constant, significant<br />

changes were made in policies<br />

regarding late fees, contracts with<br />

vendors were scrutinized and renego -<br />

tiated, and we devoted, for the first<br />

time, all revenue from video and room<br />

rentals to help cover operating costs.<br />

Donors were particularly generous,<br />

helping the <strong>Library</strong> to innovate and<br />

expand programs and collections in<br />

several wonderful ways, including:<br />

• The new Quick Picks collections<br />

of DVDs and bestsellers provided a<br />

“no reserve” and fast use option that<br />

eliminates the wait for <strong>Library</strong> patrons<br />

able to read or view quickly.<br />

• A pipe and pump re-engineering<br />

project was completed to prevent the<br />

basement flooding that has plagued<br />

us since the building was expanded.<br />

Part of the project included installation<br />

of a generator to keep the pumps going<br />

even in times of power outage.<br />

• A Cornerstone Fund was created to<br />

build a strong foundation of revenue<br />

from planned gifts for future <strong>Library</strong><br />

funding.<br />

• The Eaarth Garden (named in honor<br />

of environmentalist Bill McKibben)<br />

was established with the help of The<br />

Betsy and Jesse Fink Family Foundation<br />

for W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s Environmental<br />

Initiative. Children and their families<br />

were able to take part in raised-bed<br />

organic gardening on <strong>Library</strong> grounds –<br />

learning to love worms, vegetables,<br />

and good soil and cultivation practices<br />

in equal measure.<br />

• A “W<strong>ilton</strong> Up Close” photography program<br />

for teens facilitated by profession-<br />

als focused their creative perception<br />

of the world around them and resulted<br />

in phenomenal awareness of and<br />

depictions of things that might otherwise<br />

have remained unseen.<br />

• A seminar series on social media<br />

presented with SCORE and the W<strong>ilton</strong><br />

Chamber of Commerce drew up to<br />

80 participants per session to learn<br />

ways to market their businesses in<br />

the information age.<br />

• The <strong>Library</strong> served as a center of<br />

support for those in need: when folks<br />

wanted comfort in times of extreme<br />

heat or cold, recharging and connection<br />

capacity in times of power outage,<br />

or a gathering place where they could<br />

commiserate or celebrate together –<br />

their <strong>Library</strong> welcomed them with a<br />

smile and kind and expert assistance.<br />

W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong> is a remarkable<br />

resource for our community and con -<br />

tinues to be the cultural and lifelong<br />

discovery center for those who live<br />

and work in town. We are proud to be<br />

part of the <strong>Library</strong>’s quest for continual<br />

improvement and excellence.<br />

CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS<br />

The Children’s <strong>Library</strong> had a successful<br />

2010-11 year, thanks to the community’s<br />

generosity and support. We<br />

continue to offer quality educational<br />

and cultural materials as well as programs<br />

for children ranging in age from<br />

infant through the early teen years<br />

along with their parents.<br />

The Children’s <strong>Library</strong> offered an<br />

annual celebration of reading during<br />

our Summer Reading Program, themed<br />

“Readin’, Ridin’, and Ropin’: Go West at<br />

W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>!” Many thanks to The<br />

Coyle Family Young Readers Fund, The<br />

Steve and Alison Sherman Family Fund,<br />

The Betsy and Jesse Fink Family Foundation<br />

for W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s Environmental<br />

Initiative, and The Dibner Family Science<br />

Fund for sponsoring a large part of<br />

this program. During the Wednesday<br />

Wonders portion we were able to offer<br />

many programs and activities including<br />

cowboy entertainers Pecos Bill and<br />

Cowboy Billy. In addition to music and<br />

storytelling, the Children’s <strong>Library</strong><br />

offered a line dancing class, a gold<br />

scavenger hunt, and the Famous Westerners<br />

Meet-and-Greet. The highlight<br />

of the 2010 summer program was the<br />

return of Atka the wolf from The Wolf<br />

Conservation Center. The Children’s<br />

<strong>Library</strong> also hosted numerous story<br />

times, movies and crafts.<br />

Over the course of the year programs<br />

were made possible by The<br />

Coyle Family Young Readers Fund,<br />

including the “Spoon Man” from Mich -<br />

igan, a variety of craft programs, musician<br />

Les Julian, Teddy Bear Picnics, the<br />

Harry Potter Movie party, our annual<br />

Haunted <strong>Library</strong> and several authorand<br />

book-based programs including<br />

Have Your Cake and Read it Too!<br />

(a monthly book discussion for parents<br />

and children).<br />

The 2011 Summer Reading Program,<br />

“Plant the Seed and Read” was made<br />

possible through the generous support<br />

of The Dibner Family Science Fund, The<br />

Betsy and Jesse Fink Family Foundation<br />

for W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s Environmental Initiative,<br />

and The Coyle Family Young<br />

Readers Fund. Their support provided<br />

programs and materials to keep our<br />

children visiting the <strong>Library</strong> throughout<br />

the summer of 2011.<br />

The Dibner Family Science Fund has<br />

helped the Children’s <strong>Library</strong> bring<br />

quality science programs to children,<br />

notably Green Meadows Farm (a<br />

hands-on animal learning experience)<br />

and Riverside Reptiles. The Dibner Family<br />

also generously helps underwrite<br />

the maintenance of our beautiful saltwater<br />

aquarium (given in memory of<br />

T.J. Pramer) and provides funds for science<br />

books in our nonfiction collection.<br />

The Steve and Alison Sherman Family<br />

Fund sponsored many wonderful programs<br />

in the Children’s <strong>Library</strong> this<br />

past fiscal year. This fund has helped<br />

the <strong>library</strong> begin two unique book<br />

clubs, Good Reads, Great Kids and<br />

WINRs Circle. The WINRs Circle (W<strong>ilton</strong><br />

Intermediate Nutmeg Readers Circle),<br />

meets each month to discuss one of<br />

the ten 2012 Nutmeg nominated books.<br />

In January 2011 the Children’s <strong>Library</strong><br />

was the location for the town to vote<br />

for their favorite 2012 Nutmeg Book.<br />

Children voted for their favorite book<br />

selection and attended a party. Good<br />

Reads, Great Kids is our newest book<br />

club and is geared toward children in<br />

first and second grade. The program<br />

meets monthly to discuss a shared<br />

reading or to read together. In addition<br />

to book clubs, The Sherman Family<br />

Fund sponsored mime Robert Rivest,<br />

who presented an educational, funny,<br />

and enjoyable program for many<br />

adults and children in our community.<br />

The Betsy and Jesse Fink Family<br />

Foundation for W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong>’s Environmental<br />

Initiative sponsored a very<br />

exciting new project: The Children’s<br />

Eaarth Garden. Thanks to the generosity<br />

of the Fink family, the Children’s<br />

<strong>Library</strong> had five raised planting beds<br />

constructed on our Old Ridgefield Road<br />

patio. With the help of Annie Farrell<br />

from Millstone Farm our newly formed<br />

Garden Club planted a variety of fruits<br />

and vegetables. Ten families joined our<br />

gardening team for weekly meetings<br />

during which the children learned<br />

about the benefits of farm-to-table living<br />

in this hands-on program. We look<br />

forward<br />

to starting this club up again in the<br />

spring of 2012.<br />

This year the Children’s <strong>Library</strong><br />

has been fortunate enough to create<br />

partnerships with many community<br />

organizations. Ambler Farm and<br />

W<strong>ilton</strong> <strong>Library</strong> continued a literature<br />

and science series at the Farm. Our old<br />

train table was retired and we were<br />

given a beautiful new table by Melissa<br />

and Doug. Elm Street Books of New<br />

Christopher Porricelli (left) and<br />

Anthony Andre finding clues<br />

at the Scavenger Hunt.<br />

Canaan co-sponsored an author event<br />

with Jane O’Connor, author of the<br />

Fancy Nancy books. This event brought<br />

together 150 adults and children for<br />

a fun, interactive literature-based<br />

afternoon.<br />

In addition to the many programs<br />

sponsored by generous donors, the<br />

Children’s <strong>Library</strong> hosts two fundraising<br />

events during the year. Our Chess<br />

program for children ages 6 to 13 is<br />

offered several times a year as either<br />

a six- or eight-week program. Fifty<br />

percent of the proceeds from this program<br />

benefits the Children’s <strong>Library</strong><br />

and helps us purchase new furniture.<br />

Our other large fundraiser is Lights Out<br />

at the <strong>Library</strong>, in which boys and girls<br />

in alternate years spend the night<br />

at the <strong>library</strong>. This year’s theme was<br />

The Sleepover Mystery for girls based<br />

on the Nancy Drew series. Both fund -<br />

raisers were very successful and we<br />

thank everyone for their support.<br />

Along with our special events, story<br />

times and craft programs were offered<br />

throughout the year. We welcomed<br />

area nursery schools, grade schools,<br />

and Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops<br />

and provided tours of the <strong>library</strong>. When<br />

school groups visited, we provided<br />

instruction suited to their individual<br />

needs including database tutorials.<br />

We thank everyone for the wonderful<br />

year and the role you played in<br />

enriching the lives of families in our<br />

community.
