Passport to Connecticut Libraries


Looking for some family fun during April? Participate in the Passport to Connecticut Libraries program! Everyone in the family can get a library passport and use it to explore other CT libraries. Show us your library card to get a passport and a small gift. Then take your passport and library card to other participating libraries to get your passport stamped and to receive another small gift. If you visit at least five participating libraries and turn your passport in by May 7, you'll be entered into a drawing to win a Visa gift card of up to $150! See the list of participating libraries here.
