Speed Reading: Wilton Library Enjoys Drive Through

WILTON, Conn. – The Wilton Library's drive through, a small nook on Godfrey Place, is the fastest way for residents to use the library.

“For the most part, people either drop things off, or they come to pick things up like items on hold,” said Karen Ziebak, the head of circulation at the library.

On average, the library gets 18 to 25 visits a day at the drive-through window. The highest number of visits on record was 54 in January 2011. “It could have been because of the snowy weather or perhaps they couldn’t find a parking space,” Ziebak said.

Ziebak said the drive through is used by most every demographic in Wilton. Seniors, parents with young children, people with dogs – “We give out dog biscuits,” Ziebak said – all use the drive through. It can be easier than coming in, Ziebak said.

“We’re the only library in the area that has this so we think it’s really special,” she said. “We’re not really pushing it, but we do let them know that it’s available to them.”
