Passport to Reading: Now Boarding to Your Next Destination

Passport to Reading


Where will you go in your Passport to Reading?! BCLS is excited to offer this program to adults (18+) to help expand your horizons in your reading selection and visit books from all over the world! 

Here's how it works: You will receive your very own Passport at any branch location to keep track of your reading and destinations. You will need to read 12 books set in at least 3 different continents. You may read multiple books from the same country, or multiple countries within a continent, so long as you have read from 3 different continents at the end of your 12 books.

As you go through your 12 books, you will receive a stamp in your Passport to Reading at any branch for each book you finish. When you have finished your 12 books, bring your passport to any branch and you will be entered into a prize drawing. Then you can start all over again for another chance in a drawing!

You must be a Bay County Resident to be eligible for the prize drawing. 

Passports are valid October 1, 2022 to May 31, 2023.
