Shelton libraries offer Passport Program

A library card opens the world through books, audiobooks, music CDs and DVDs.  Now  Shelton library cards open the doors of Connecticut libraries as part of the second state-wide Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program.
To celebrate National Library Week during April, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites participants to visit the 124 Connecticut public libraries part of this year’s program. Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse. The Passport Program is open to adults and children with hopes that it encourages residents to explore the amazing diversity of Connecticut public libraries.

Beginning April 1, visit either Plumb Memorial Library (65 Wooster Street) or the Huntington Branch Library in the Community Center to pick up a Library Passport. It will be stamped and a token gift provided. Then, as other participating libraries are visited, show a Shelton library card and each library will stamp the passport and give another small gift.

Visit at least five participating libraries before April 30 and return the Library Passport to a participating library by May 6th, then be entered into one 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).

Or continue to visit more libraries by the April 30 deadline and be considered for the second random drawing from all who visited the most libraries – open to one adult and one child in this state-wide contest sponsored by the Connecticut Library Association.

For a full list of participating libraries, stop into Plumb or Huntington, both Passport to Connecticut Libraries and receive more details.
