This week we have two exciting things to announce – one for people looking to get out of Hamilton for a day trip and the other for people sticking around on hot sunny days!
First, we have more museum passes available for you to check out (for free), paid for by the Friends of the Library! The library already has passes to the Fenimore Art Museum and Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, an Empire Pass that allows you access to over 100 New York State parks, the Utica Children’s Museum, and the Stone Quarry Hill Art park. Recently, through the assistance of the MidYork Library System, we have added passes to the Everson Museum of Art AND an Onondaga County Parks Pass!
Passes for the Everson Museum of Art (located in Syracuse) grants free access for up to two adults and children under 12 years of age. The Onondaga County Parks Pass gets you into six different parks in that county: Beaver Lake Nature Center, Highland Forest, Jamesville Beach Park, Oneida Shores Park, Pratt’s Falls Park, and the Rosamond Gifford Zoo! Each of those six parks has different regulations on admission which are explained in detail on the reverse side of that very pass! I’d tell you what that says here, but right now the pass is checked out. Sorry!
All our passes check out for a week. Reserve one online through our website or stop in to see what’s available.
As for the new thing we have for people sticking around Hamilton on sunny days – we have a sunscreen dispenser! Located right next to our front door during our open hours, this SPF 30 dispenser was provided courtesy of Cancer Prevention in Action of Herkimer, Madison, and Oneida Counties, a program through the New York State Department of Health. No more worries if you forgot sunblock before the Farmer’s Market, Cruise-In Tuesdays, Thursdays on the Green, or just walking the Monday Mile – we’ve got you covered!
