Borrow a pass today! The Howard Whittemore Library offers passes for free or reduced admission to museums and other attractions around the state. Museum passes may only be borrowed by adults with library cards that do not have blocks.
The passes are available on a first come, first served basis. Only one pass may be checked out to a household at any given time and must be returned prior to borrowing another.
