The Passport Program encourages families to enhance summer reading with visits to area museums and attractions

About the program

We're excited to partner with 15 local sites to enrich our Summer Library Club. Each visit to one of the participating attractions—or to a summer library program—will count one hour towards your reading goal, up to a total of five hours. Plus, get 10 stamps on your Passport and you can enter to win a grand prize drawing at Visit Knoxville. NOTE: To get a stamp, you must complete the activity. Admission fees may apply. 

Get Started

Put on your traveling shoes, pick up your passport, and explore your world! Your passport awaits you at any Library location or participating museum or attraction, starting May 18. What will you do at each place? Glad you asked: Activities are subject to change
