Passport to Connecticut Libraries program begins April 1

Edith Wheeler Memorial Library is at 733 Monroe Turnpike.

MONROE, CT – Edith Wheeler Memorial library will participate in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program from April 1 to April 30, joining over 100 libraries in the state.

To celebrate National Library Week, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites adults and children alike to visit all of the participating Connecticut public libraries during the month of April, while exploring each library’s architecture, ambiance and collection.

To participate, visit the library to pick up your passport and show staff your library card to get a stamp and a free gift. Then, take your passport with you to other participating libraries and receive a stamp at each stop.

Visit Edith the library’s website to learn about Author Talks.

Visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport to any participating library by May 10, to be entered into a statewide drawing for a chance to win a $200 Visa gift card for an adult, age 18 and older, or a $200 Visa gift card for a child under 18.

The Visits must occur between April 1 and April 30.

Four winners will be selected: one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who return their passports with at least five different library stamps, and one adult and one child who visited the most libraries and received stamps.

For information, visit ewml.org or call the Reference Desk at 203-452-2852.
