Library Passport Program is Back!

The Boulder Junction Public Library is bringing back the Library Passport Program inviting visitors and residents to visit public libraries this spring and summer for a chance to win a prize!.

What’s not to love about northern Wisconsin? We’re home to the Musky Capital of the World (Boulder Junction), the world’s largest musky and walleye fish hatchery (Spooner), and the birthplace of Smokey the Bear (Mercer)! While you’re exploring northern Wisconsin this spring and summer, make sure to include public libraries on your travel itinerary for a chance to win a prize!

The Library Passport Program from the Northern Waters Library Network invites you to stop in at any Northern Waters library 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 receive an entry form for a prize drawing, giving you a chance to win one of four Kwik Trip gas cards.

Passports contain a variety of “fun facts” about each library in the Northern Waters Library Network, including library and community attractions. So, swing by the Winchester Public Library and say “hello” to their library cat, Gus! Stop by Presque Isle Community Library and grab a homemade cookie! Visit Superior Public Library and check out their exquisite local history murals! No matter where your travels take you, public libraries are the heart of the community, offering free WiFi, programs and events, and much more.

Passports will be available to pick up at any Northern Waters library in early April. Entries for the prize drawing are due August 31, 2024. The drawing will take place in early September.
