Perfect outings rain or shine: Library’s expanded museum & park pass program

Since the fall Friends of the Southborough Library gifted the library with five more museum/park passes (and acquired another for free). This brings the Library’s number of discount/free passes up to twenty!

With Memorial Day weekend coming up, and summer vacation not far behind, it’s a good time to revisit all the passes the library has to offer.

Museum passes cover art, history, science, nature, and children’s play. There are also passes for enjoying MA State Parks, gardens and wildlife. And you can tour Boston by foot or its islands by boat.

You can find details and reserve passes through the museum pass page on the library’s website. Or you can make reservations by calling 508-485-5031. (Please note that some passes need to be returned by 10am the following morning.)

For fun, I’ve posted a gallery of photos to show the diversity of pass offerings (in alpha order). Scroll down for the full list.
