NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Throughout April, patrons of the C.H. Booth Library can explore 124 other state libraries through the Connecticut Library Association's Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program.
The Passport program is open to adults and children, to encourage residents to explore the diversity of the state's public libraries. "Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse," a news release notes.
To participate, visit the C.H. Booth Library to pick up your passport. Librarians will stamp the passport and hand out commemorative 2016 C.H. Booth Library buttons. Then, take the passport to any of the other 124 participating libraries. At each visit, residents must show their library card, and then the library will stamp the passport and give another token.
Connecticut residents that visit at least five participating libraries and return their passport to a participating library by May 6th will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults or a $100 Visa gift card for children.
This is a statewide contest, and 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 winners will be informed by phone and mailed their prize. For more details and a full list of participating libraries, click here or ask a librarian.
