We look forward to providing you with an opportunity to discover and support the great small businesses in your hometown. 

During this week-long event, you can participate in the Shop Small passport challenge and enter a drawing to win a gift certificate to a local business! 

Visit any of our participating locations to pick up your passport, along with a map of participating businesses and shopping bag (while supplies last). Then explore participating businesses all week long, and gather stamps for your passport. 

To be entered into the prize drawing, bring your completed passport back to the library before 6pm on December 4. One prize winner will be drawn for each location and notified by December 10, and each winner can choose the participating small business for their gift certificate.
