‘Passports’ To Vermont Libraries Encourage Literary Exploration

The Vermont Library Association wants you to get out and explore some different libraries this summer, so they're giving out passports to be stamped at public and academic libraries around the state.

This is a really cool project that the Vermont Library Association is undertaking: a library passport to encourage people to visit Vermont’s libraries. VPR recently covered the project:

The Vermont Library Association is taking a page out of the 251 Club’s playbook or, more accurately, its travel journal. The VLA has signed up 99 libraries around Vermont to issue library passports to encourage patrons to visit other Vermont libraries this summer.

The Passport to Vermont Libraries adventure kicked off June 1 and runs until September 1. Participating public and academic libraries will be stamping passports and handing out small prizes. Although not every library in the state is handing out passports and issuing special stamps, patrons can still ask for a library date stamp from any Vermont library.
