2024 Library Passport program

April 8 - August 31


The Northern Waters Library Network invites visitors and residents to take a tour of the area’s public libraries 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 the wearable Smokey Bear costume (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!

Launching in early April, the Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN) Library Passport program invites you to stop in at any Northern Waters library and pick up a passport. 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 totaling $500!

The passports contain a variety of “fun facts” about each NWLN library, including library and community attractions. 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. And remember, if you hold a card from any NWLN library, you can check out materials from any of the 30 libraries that participate in the system.

Pick up a passport at the Mercer Public Library or any Northern Waters library, or download a printable passport at northernwaters.org/passport.

Entries for the prize drawing are due August 31, 2024. The drawing will take place in early September. To find a Northern Waters library near you, visit northernwaters.org/passport or stop by the Mercer Library for more information.
