The Friends of the Hudson Library have recently purchased a new Museum Pass for Olana State Historic Site. With a valid Mid Hudson Library card, patrons may check out a pass that will allow free admission for up to six people (a $72 value). Passes may be borrowed on a first-come, first-serve basis for a three day period. House tours are included and reservations are encouraged.
The Library will also be receiving a new museum pass for the Columbia County Historical Society. This pass admits up to four adults, seniors, or children over the age of 12. Children under the age of 12 are always free.
Free passes are also available for the Fireman’s Association of the State of NY Museum of Firefighting in Hudson and the Sterling and Francine Clark Museum in Williamstown, MA. Call the library or stop in for more information.
