SANDOWN —June is Food for Fines Donation Month at the Sandown Library. Bring in canned goods, and other pantry items and we will waive your fines up to $25.00. We are pleased to partner with the Sandown Food Pantry and help to stock their shelves for the summer months. This is a great opportunity to check around the house, under the bed, and under your car seats for books that may be overdue and bring them back to the library.
We have a wonderful selection of museum passes at the library that can be reserved in advance. These passes offer great discounts on admission fees. So if you are planning a few days of staycation, check out our passes to: The Children’s Museum (Dover), The Butterfly Place (Westford, MA), Museum of Science (Boston, MA), Seacoast Science Center (Rye) and the Currier Art Gallery (Manchester) to name a few. Also, brand new this summer we will have the NH State Park Pass and the New England Aquarium! Go to the library’s website at www.sandownlibrary.org or call the library, 603-887-3428, for more information.
