New Milford Public Library is very excited to participate in the Connecticut Library Association's first Passport to CT Libraries program. Based on the Wine Trail Passport Program in CT, this program will run during Library Card Sign - Up Month from September 2 - 30. Public libraries will offer their patrons a Passport that you will take to any other participating library to be stamped and receive a small gift. At the end of the month, patrons will turn in their passports to any participating library to be entered in two drawings: Most Libraries Visited and one Random Drawing for all participants. The drawing will be for two adult prizes of $150.00 each and two children's (under 18) of $100.00 each. Find us on Facebook under Passport to Connecticut Libraries to see a complete list of all the participating libraries or pick up a list in the Library
