In case you didn’t already know, discounted passes for many area museums and parks are available through the library. You can reserve passes through the library’s website or by calling the Reference Desk (978-256-5521). There are 17 museums and parks in all, with some of the most popular being the Museum of Science, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Discovery Museums in Acton, and the New England Aquarium. And, the library just added a new pass – the Davis’ Farmland & MegaMaze in Sterling.
Also, starting April 1st, 2007, there will be a new system for reserving passes online. All of the same passes and guidelines still apply, but the screens will look a little different. The new system will allow people to view multiple days at a time, and can also send and email to remind you to pick up your pass. Another new feature is that people will be able to delete reservations for passes they no longer want – just click on the “My Passes” link to manage all of the passes you have on request.
Funding for these passes is provided by the Friends of the Chelmsford Library, as well as from individual patrons. Passes are available to all Chelmsford residents and any member of the Friends group. To reserve passes online, you will need your library barcode number (from your library card) and your PIN. Anyone with questions or problems should contact the Reference Desk for assistance.
