Passport to Connecticut Libraries at Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

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, make sure you have your valid library card from our hometown library. While you’re there, pick up your Passport. They will stamp it and give you a token gift to get you started. Then, take your Passport along as you visit other participating libraries. 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 (5) participating libraries and return your passport to a participating library by May 7th, then you will be entered into one state-wide drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa card for adults (18 and up) and a $100 Visa 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.  Over one hundred Connecticut libraries are proud to participate in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program. For more details and a full list of participating libraries, visit or call the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.
