September 2014 Newsletter
Library passport program:  Our library will be participating in the first Passport to CT Libraries program, running in 87 public libraries throughout September. Every participating library will offer a Passport to their patrons, that each patron will take to any participating library to be stamped and receive a small gift. At the end of the month, patrons will turn in their passports to any participating library to be entered in two drawings: Most Libraries Visited and a Random Drawing for all participants. The drawing will be for two adult prizes of $150 each and two children’s (under 18) of $100 each. See more on Facebook under Passport to Connecticut Libraries
Friends of the Library Book Sale Bonanza: See below for details on special weekend hours.
