Get out and play!

Warmer weather is finally here! Now that we’re all done hibernating, I want to go out and play. But how do you enjoy spending time out & about without breaking the bank? By going to the library, of course.

I don’t mean that you should stay inside at the library all day – come to the library to check out a Museum Adventure Pass, then spend the day at destinations like Brookfield Zoo and the Chicago Botanic Garden for free or at a reduced rate.

My favorite pass is for the Chicago Botanic Garden; it entitles the bearer to half off parking for one vehicle – it saves you $10. I love to pack a picnic lunch and drive myself down on a Saturday. Being immersed in the beauty of the gardens is rejuvenating (and free!).

You can learn more about the Museum Adventure Pass online. When you’re ready to check out a pass, come visit us at the Reference and Computer Help Desk on the main floor of the library.

Enjoy the sunshine!
