Rockford Public Library kicks off ‘Passage to Adventure’ program

Staff Report

Rockford Public Library (RPL) recently kicked off a new program titled “Passage to Adventure.” Under the program, RPL partners with local community organizations to offer patrons exclusive deals and offers at participating Rockford-area destinations.

Each week, RPL’s community partners will supply offers for reduced admission, two-for-one ticket discounts, or free passes to different venues and businesses around the city. To take advantage of these offers, RPL patrons must have a current Rockford Public Library card, and their account must be in good standing. If someone does not have a Rockford Public Library card and needs to get one, they can visit any of the library’s six locations and fill out an application in person.

The library has reported that the first week of the program saw tremendous success, with nearly every offer at each location claimed in the first week. Community partners include Anderson Japanese Gardens; JustGoods — A Fair Trade Marketplace; Kantorei, The Singing Boys of Rockford; Kate’s Pie Shop; Klehm Arboretum; Midway Village Museum; Discovery Center; Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center; Rockford Aviators; Rockford Park District; and Rockford Symphony Orchestra. More partners are expected to join the program each week.
