Check Out a Museum!

Beginning September 1st, the library will be participating in the Museum Adventure Pass program, sponsored by Macy's. This program will allow Glencoe residents to "check out" a pass for free entry or free parking at one of a number of local museums. You have one week to use the pass and there is a limit on number of passes per week, per museum. Some participating museums are Brookfield Zoo, Chicago Botanic Garden, Kohl Children's Museum, The Lake County Discovery Museum and Morton Arboretum - here is a full list of participating museums. More information can be found at the Reference Desk or Children's Department. We hope that you're as excited about this new program as we are!
