The Southbury Public Library and Sustainable Southbury have partnered to create a Town Poet Laureate program!
Many towns and the state of Connecticut have Poet Laureate programs where candidates submit their work for review by a panel of judges and the winner represents the respective town or state, while promoting poetry and literacy. Regarding adding a Poet Laureate to Southbury, First Selectman Jeff Manville said “Art and culture are an important part of our community and a Town Poet Laureate would be a welcome addition to our community."
The Passport to Connecticut Libraries program runs from April 1–30, 2022! Pick up your Passport from either circulation desk and visit at least five participating libraries during April to enter for a chance to win a Visa gift card of up to $150!
Did you know you can use your hometown library card to visit ANY public library in the State of Connecticut? Your one library card can bring you to more than 140 libraries and 15 million books and other items!
