Looking for ideas to mix it up a bit and do something exciting this summer?
The Greenwich Library may just be the ticket — literally.
The library has a park and museum pass program for library cardholders who can explore the Constitution State. The passes provide free admission or discounts to a variety of Connecticut State parks, forests, and beaches as well as selected area museums.
The passes may be checked out for three days at a time on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations or renewals are permitted and a $1 per day late fee will be charged for overdue passes. The passes are available at the Main Library to both Greenwich Library and Perrot Library cardholders.
