The Friends of the Kingston Community Library have updated their policy on passes for Museums and accredited zoos. In place of the passes we are now reimbursing up to 50% of the ticket price and up to $20.00 per family group visit. Forms are now available at the desk for patrons to complete and submit along with a viable receipt of payment. Amusement and theme parks are not covered, however the new policy dramatically increases the number of places a family may visit and receive a reimbursement.
