Passport to Connecticut Libraries

Get Your Passport to Connecticut Libraries!

Sponsored by Connecticut Library Association & The Friends of the Library

Heartfelt thanks to Patti and Erik Landegren for their generous contribution.


Your library card opens the world to you through books, audio books, DVDs, and our Digital  Branch of eBooks, eAudio, steaming movies and television and more. Now let your library card open the doors of Connecticut libraries by participating in the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program!

Over one hundred Connecticut libraries are proud to participate in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program. To celebrate National Library Week during April, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites you to visit all the participating Connecticut public libraries. Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse! The program is open to adults and children, and the hope is that it encourages residents to explore the amazing diversity of our public libraries.

To participate, visit the Burnham Library, present your library card, and receive your Passport. Get it stamped and receive a token gift to get your started. At each visit, you must show your library card, and then the library will stamp your passport and give you another small gift!

If you visit at least five participating libraries and return your Passport to your hometown library by Mary 7th, you will be entered into one state-wide drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults (18 and older) and a $100 Visa gift card for children (under 18). This is a state-wide contest where 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.

BURNHAM LIBRARY IS ONE OF 147 Connecticut libraries participating in this program. We hope to see you!
