  museum pass poster Enjoy a museum visit on us! Patrons can check out a Pass FREE for three days!  Choose from our collection of six museum passes and explore wonderful local museums.   The goal of the Museum Pass program is to provide children and adults an opportunity to experience history, culture and the arts through a visit to a museum. The Friends of the Library is able to offer the Museum Pass Program due to the success of its many fundraising activities. Our Membership Fee Donations, gifts from generous donors, revenues from the Used Book Sales, Library Mini Golf, the Spring Fling Raffle, and other fundraisers allow the Friends of the Library to offer this service to our library patrons. For information on becoming a Friend of the Library, check out our information page at http://toblibrary.sals.edu/index.php/friends/ If you would like to sponsor a family membership to an area museum, please contact Library Director Karen DeAngelo at the library or by calling 518-399-8174 ext. 5 or by email at kdeangelo@sals.edu
