Wilton Library kicks off Giving Tuesday on Dec. 1 with a generous donation from the caring agents of Coldwell Banker Realty of Wilton. The representatives are donating portions of their commissions to the library in the amount of $1,000 to honor the community and the library.
Courtney Lilly, Wilton Library’s development director said of the donation, “We are so thankful to this group of Coldwell Banker agents who are selflessly giving to Wilton Library for Giving Tuesday. These are difficult times for everyone, and we’re thrilled that Coldwell Banker is challenging the community to give what they can to Wilton Library, the jewel of the community. The realty group understands that it’s the power of people who can transform their communities, and they are setting an example of that for this special day.”
The pandemic has isolated many individuals but Giving Tuesday provides Wiltonians with a way to give back to the community, by making a safe connection with a place they love while still physically distancing.

Wilton Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit association that receives some of its funding through the public/private partnership with the Town of Wilton. Twenty-five percent of the library’s budget beyond what the town provides has to be raised each year. Those funds cover 100% of the books, audiobooks, DVDs, and music CDs that are on the shelves and all of the content of the Digital Library, as well as programs and services for all ages.
