The library is excited to offer our patrons two additional museum passes to add to our exciting lineup of passes currently being offered.
With the weather getting better, patrons can reserve our new Historic New England and Mass Audubon passes to get outdoors and explore the beauty and history of our state. For more information, as well as to place an online reservation on a pass, click here.
Museum passes are funded by the Friends of the Newburyport Public Library. If you are curious about all the wonderful work the Friends do for the library and to get involved, visit their website here.
The library is so pleased to offer two new movie experiences for our patrons in April.
On Monday April 3rd & April 24th, from 2:30-4:30, we will be hosting the Sensory Friendly Movie Matinee.
The room will be lighter, the volume will be lower, and audience members will be welcome to move around, talk, and sing or do anything they feel they need to do in order to be comfortable, unless the safety of the audience is in question.
On Monday April 10th, from 2:30-4:30, we will be hosting the Stroller Movie Matinee.
Stroller Matinees are a baby-friendly, judgment-free space for adults to enjoy films with babies who may otherwise be unwelcome in traditional movie theaters. The room will be lighter, the volume will be lower, and audience members are welcome to move around, talk to their babies, and bring their strollers or car seats inside.
