Museum Passes

This week was incredibly busy with our patrons borrowing museum passes. Please keep in mind:

You may book our passes on line through a link on our can browse and see what passes we have, which are already booked, see what the co-pays are, etc. Feel free to call and we'll tell you how to do it, or we'll do it for you.

School vacation weeks are very, very busy!

The RISD Museum pass was the only one today not booked...we'd love to see folks borrowing that pass and enjoying the art!

The Easton Children's Museum has recently instituted a copay, which is 50% of the ticket cost...usually $3.00 per person.

Please do call us at 508-261-7380 if you have questions.

Computer trouble?

Yesterday a library user gave us a laugh...he told our reference librarian that he thought a computer problem he was having was a "picnic." A picnic, you ask?

Problem in chair, not in computer.

We loved it!

Catch the Beat for Your Library

Libraries and library organizations in Massachusetts have teamed up with Barnes and Noble for a special event, "Catch the Beat for Your Library at Barnes & Noble." This two day event will raise much needed funding for summer reading programs in Massachusetts libraries. B&N will donate a percentage of every sale from every customer who presents a bookfair voucher at any B&N store in Massachusetts on April 20 and 21. Vouchers will be available at our main desk.
