Library Passport Program

Hurry – last chance to get your passport stamped is August 31st!

The Boulder Junction Public Library is launching the Library Passport Program. Did you know that the oldest Dairy Queen in Wisconsin can be found in Lake Nebagamon? Or that Sayner is the birthplace of the snowmobile? Northern Wisconsin is full of history, culture, and natural splendor – and this spring and summer, you can discover it all – with help from your local library!

The Library Passport Program from the Northern Waters Library Network invites you to stop in at any Northern Waters library beginning April 24 and pick up a passport. Make sure to bring your passport with you as you travel throughout northern Wisconsin this spring and summer and get a stamp at each library you visit. Collect 10 different stamps and you’ll be given an entry form to submit for a prize drawing! You could win gas cards, Wisconsin-themed travel books, road trip supplies, and much more!

The passports will contain a variety of “fun facts” about each library in the Northern Waters Library Network, including library and community attractions. So, if you visit the Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library in Hayward, make sure to check out the library’s half-mile Nature Trail with a StoryWalk® and a four-season audio guide. And make sure to stop by Shell Lake Public Library on a Friday – that’s when they have popcorn!

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
