Passport to Connecticut Libraries
Several area libraries will be participating in the “Passport to Connecticut Libraries” program during the month of April. A Connecticut Library Association initiative, the Passport program encourages residents to visit their local libraries and others around the state, learn about the programs and other services available, and appreciate each library’s special quirks.
Adults and children with a library card can get a passport at any participating library and earn a stamp and a small prize for each library they visit during the month. Patrons who visit at least five libraries can submit their passport by May 7 to be entered in a state-wide raffle.
Passports are available at all participating libraries, including Groton Public Library, Bill Memorial Library, Bill Library, Gales Ferry Library, Lyme Public Library, Mystic and Noank Library, Public Library of New London, East Lyme Public Library, Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, Salem Free Public Library, Stonington Free Library, and the Waterford Public Library.
