MANCHESTER — The public library will join over 100 Connecticut libraries in the “Passport to Connecticut” initiative, beginning next month.
Between April 2 and 30, participants can pick up a passport from a participating library and receive a token gift.
“Passport to Connecticut” runs in conjunction with National Library Week, which takes place during April. Its goal is to introduce local readers to the unique charms of public libraries all around the state.
At each library visit, passport holders can show their library card to receive a stamp and a small gift. Library-goers who make it to at least five libraries by April 30 must turn in their passports to their local library by May 7 to be entered in a drawing for a Visa gift card.
There will be separate drawings for adults and children. The adult winner will win a $150 gift card and a winner under 18 years old will win a $100 gift card. There will also be a separate drawing for adults and children who visited the most libraries during the program’s run.
Public libraries in Coventry, East Hartford, Ellington, Enfield, Hebron, South Windsor, Suffield, Tolland, Windsor, Windsor Locks, and Vernon will all be taking part.
A full list of the participating libraries can be found on the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Facebook page.
