Please bring your donations to the circulation desk so that your fines may be cancelled.  We ask that your donations reflect the spirit of the season. This program begins November 14th and continues through December 30th. Food cannot be accepted for replacement of lost or damaged materials.  Thanks to Tri Town Foods for the use of their shopping cart.

ArtArt at the Library

 
The month of December will bring a very special exhibit to our Library entitled
“What I Love About Portland!” 
Students from all five of Portland’s Public Schools will display their paintings and drawings depicting their favorite thing about their hometown. What a fitting ending to Portland’s 175th Anniversary celebration! 

Printable Museum Passes
Museum Passes Available at the Portland Library!
Portland Library now offers more convenience to its popular museum pass service.  Fifteen of its 20 passes are now printable passes.  When you reserve a pass online, a printable pass may be generated at that point.  You take the printable pass to the participating museum or zoo for entrance or to receive a discount.  The printable pass does not need to be returned to the Portland Library.
The remaining passes will be checked out using the standard procedures.  These nonprintable passes must be returned by midnight of the reservation day (the day of your visit to the museum) since other patrons may be waiting to use the pass the next day.

Printable passes: Children’s Museum/Roaring Brook Nature Center, Connecticut River Museum, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Florence Griswold Museum, Imagine Nation Children’s Museum, Lutz Children’s Museum, Mark Twain House, Mystic Seaport, New Britain Museum of American Art, New England Air Museum, New Haven Museum, Peabody Museum of Natural History, Roger Williams Park Zoo, and Wadsworth Atheneum

Nonprintable passes:  Beardsley Zoo, KidCity Children’s Museum, Maritime Aquarium & Imax, Mystic Aquarium, and No Child Left Inside/State Parks & Forests’ Day Pass

The Friends of the Portland Library supports the museum pass service.
