MUSEUM PASSES AVAILABLE
Are you looking for something to do for summer vacation? Through the generosity of the Friends of the Hollis Social Library, we are able to offer passes for discounted or free admission to several New England museums. Each pass works differently, and your account must be in good standing (meaning no fines!) to receive your passes. To reserve a pass, call or visit the library or email the help desk. Passes should be picked up the day before or day of your visit.
