Post image for Great venues: Library passes to museums and parks

Above: The Southborough Library offers passes to several venues for some great day trips (or mini-vacations) this summer. (scroll down for photo credits)

I like to occasionally remind readers of all the great museum and park passes the Southborough Library offers. A few offer free admission, with the rest providing a substantial discount.

Passes cover a variety of museums for all age groups. There are also passes for enjoying parks, gardens and wildlife. With so many to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

For fun, I posted another photo gallery demonstrating the breadth of choices. (Click thumbnails for details and photo credits).

Now here’s the list by name:

(Please note that some passes need to be returned by 10am the next day the library is open. Since the Library is closed for the weekends in the summer, that means one taken out on Friday is due by 10:00 am on Monday.)

You can find details and reserve passes through the library’s website pass manager. Or you can make reservations by calling 508-485-5031 during library hours.

**Thanks to the Friends of the Southborough Library for funding the majority of the passes and the Southborough Gardeners for providing the Tower Hill pass.
