PassPort Program
Pickup at the Circulation Desk
For children ages 3-10


Do you have cabin fever? Don’t fret. Travel the world through OWL’s book stacks - for free! Are you aching for a new adventure filled with action and suspense? Are you dying (pun intended) to solve a mystery? Do you wish you could feel the sand between your toes as you relax with a beach read? Well, this challenge is for you!

Pickup your travel documents at the circulation desk and choose from a variety of themes including Animals, Genres, Places to Go, and People to See. Check out materials based on the varying challenges. Try out different kinds of fiction, non-fiction, and even audio books. Complete your passport for a special traveler certificate, and to get your name on the children’s bulletin board.

Meet Miss Petitfour, a modern-day Mary Poppins. The Adventures of Miss Petitfour features the magical woman and her sixteen cats. Their everyday escapades include shopping in their downtown green at the hardware store and the book shop, and cruising in Mr. Coneybeare’s convertible car. See how Miss Petitfour turns an ordinary day into an enchanted one. Each week we will enjoy a peanut-free snack while Mrs. Shaia reads a chapter aloud.

Each child will be given a complimentary copy of the book.

Please register online and notify Litchfield Center or Intermediate School in writing by January 6 if you want your child to ride the bus from school to the library.

Outreach Storytimes for Preschoolers

Each month, Mrs. Shaia, Children’s Librarian, will be bringing her suitcase of storytime themes to Litchfield Headstart, Room to Grow, School on the Green, and the 3-year and 4-year old classes at Litchfield Center School.

Each program is unique, supports the preschool curriculum, and includes new and classic picture books, flannel board stories, fingerplays, musical instruments, puppets and a themed craft. PLUS, Mrs. Shaia brings books from OWL’s extensive collection for the schools to borrow each month!
