Passport Program

Let your library card open the doors of Connecticut libraries by participating in the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program! To celebrate National Library Week the program invites you to visit all of the 124 participating Connecticut public libraries.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 NMPL to pick up your Passport. We will stamp it and give you a token gift to get you started. Then, take your Passport along as you visit other participating libraries. If you visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport to a participating library by May 6th, you will be entered into a state-wide 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).
