WILLINGTON - On Thursday, April 11, the library will hold the Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) program at 6:30 p.m. The goal of D.E.A.R. is to encourage independent silent reading for extended periods of time on a daily basis. Please plan to drop by the library and for a fun-filled reading experience and meet reading friend "Tulip" the dog. On Saturday, April 13, Touch -a -Truck day will be held at the Willington Library. This family-friendly event will provide the young and young-at-heart a unique opportunity to get up close, safely explore and learn about a wide variety of transportation vehicles at work in the community every day. There will be a fire engine, dump truck, police car, motorcycle, tow truck and more. This is an event for the whole family. There is no charge for this program; no registration is required. April 16 is Snapshot Day in the library. Libraries all over Connecticut will be taking a snapshot- collecting information to capture the impact that Connecticut libraries have on their communities on a typical day. In these difficult economic times, Connecticut libraries are busier than ever with people coming not only to check out books but use computers, look for a job or attend the many programs that our libraries offer. There will be an opportunity for patrons to comment on what their library means to them. On Wednesday, April 24, a variety of chicken eggs will be put into the new incubator. Watch and learning about what happens during the incubation process with the final result on or about May 15 - new baby chicks.
