MONROE, Conn. -- The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library in Monroe is offering its patrons the opportunity to enter and win one of four statewide gift card prizes as part of National Library Week.
As part of National Library Week, which continues through April 30, participants can let their library card open the doors of 124 Connecticut libraries by participating in the monthlong Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program.
Sponsored by the Connecticut Library Association, the program invites residents of all ages to explore the diversity of public libraries.
Every participating library offers a passport to its patrons (one for adults and one for children under 18), as well as a small gift upon signing up.
The patron can then visit at least five participating libraries, having the passport stamped once at each library. Completed passports can be turned in to any participating library by May 6.
Each library will then select a winner of the most libraries visited for submission to a second drawing, as well as a random drawing, which will be applied to a final drawing for four VISA gift card prizes (two adults of $150 each and two children of $100 each).
