A New Museum Pass Added to Our Collection

Did you know the library has several museum passes available for checkout? Our newest pass is for the Children’s Museum of Saratoga*. Founded in 1990, the Children’s Museum at Saratoga is “dedicated to creating an interactive community that inspires curiosity, sparks imagination and nurtures discovery.”

These free passes offer opportunities for patrons to visit local museums free of charge and may be checked out for three days. The endcap of the DVD collection in the back of the library, near the Information Desk, houses the passes.
