3/8/2016 - Passport to CT Libraries Statewide Program

MEDIA RELEASE, March 8, 2016, Southbury, CT

Passport to CT Libraries Statewide Program

The Southbury Public Library will be participating in the second Passport to CT Libraries program during the month of April.

Your library card opens the world to you through books, audio books, music CDs and DVDs. Now let your library card open the doors of Connecticut libraries by participating in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program! 124 Connecticut libraries are proud to participate. To celebrate National Library week, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites you to visit all of the participating Connecticut public libraries during the month of April. Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse! The program is open to adults and children, and the hope is that it encourages residents to explore the amazing diversity of our public libraries.

To participate, visit your local participating library to pick up your passport. A staff member will stamp it and give you a token gift to get you started. Then, take your passport along as you visit other participating libraries. At each visit, you must show your library card, and then the library will stamp your passport and give you another small gift.

If you visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport to a participating library by May 20th, then you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults (18 and up) and a $100 Visa gift card for children (under 18). This is a state­wide contest where four winners will be selected: one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited at least five libraries, and one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited the most libraries. The drawing will be held on June 1st and the winners will be informed by telephone and mailed their prize.

For more details and a full list of participating libraries, visit or ask your local librarian.
