You can now borrow any of three new Museum Pass Kits from the library! There are two Sciencenter Kits – each kit has a Sciencenter pass and a book.  One kit contains the book “The Outdoor Scientist: The Wonder of Observing the Natural World” by Temple Grandin, the other contains Steve Spangler’s “Super Cool Science Experiments for Kids.” There is also one Museum of the Earth/Cayuga Nature Center Kit with a pass to these PRI (Paleontological Research Institution) locations and the book “How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum” by Jessie Hartland.

The kits may be checked out using an adult patron’s library card for a loan period of 7 days. Kits can not be placed on hold.
Replacement fees for loss or damage of
-a book is $10
-a Sciencenter pass is $50
-a PRI (Museum of the Earth/Cayuga Nature Center) pass is $150

Included in the kit is a short printed survey and a link to the same survey online.
We encourage you to complete this survey when you are ready to return the kit – your feedback will help the library to better serve our community.

The kits were purchased with a grant from the Myrtle Dee Nash Memorial Fund of Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
