Passport to Connecticut Libraries

Passport to Connecticut Libraries
April 1 – April 30

Over one hundred Connecticut libraries will 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 of the participating Connecticut public libraries. Take the opportunity to explore each library’s architecture, ambiance and collection.  The program is open to adults and children, encouraging you to explore the many different libraries in Connecticut.

To participate, stop by our Circulation Desk to pick up your Passport. We will also give you a cool “thank you” gift! Then, take your Passport along as you visit other participating libraries. At each library you visit, they will stamp your passport and give you a token gift.

Visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport by May 6th, to be entered into one state-wide drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults (18 and up) and a $100 Visa gift card for children (under 18).  Visits must occur between April 1 and April 30. This is a statewide 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.

Get a library card, even though we are closed to the public!

All Avon residents in need of a library card – you’re in luck! 

We are currently issuing library card numbers by email while we are closed to the public.  You will then have full access to all of our e-resources including eBooks, audiobooks, streaming movies and more!

Please send an email to librarycards@avonctlibrary.info to request your library card number!  Staff will be working remotely from home, and will respond to your email within 24-48 hours.

Once we re-open to the public, you will need to visit the library in person (with photo ID and proof of residency) to pick up your library card – and we will be so happy to see you!  Our hope is that by having access to all of our online resources, it will provide some degree of entertainment, enrichment and comfort during this stressful time.
