It's no secret that we love Darien Library. When our kids were younger, the storytimes were a lifesaver, and now that the kids are older, there's a whole new range of programming for them to discover, such as Fall Into Art, which opens for registration today.
Life in Darien got a whole lot sweeter this summer with the soft opening of Chocolate Works in Goodwives Plaza (right next to Wine Port). We first heard about this magic place from our kids, of course, who had been hearing from their friends about a hot new birthday party joint in town.

The first day of school for students in Darien Public Schools is Monday, August 31st. The 2015-16 School Year Bus Schedule is here.
