The Friends of the Topsfield Library have just purchased a new and highly requested pass! The New England Aquarium pass will be available starting Tuesday, September 8th. This pass allows four people a discounted admission of $10.00 each. Regular admission is $26.95 for adults and $17.95 for children. A family of four can save almost $50 by using this pass!
The New England Aquarium pass, like all our museum passes, can be reserved on our Museum Pass page. If you don't have your library card barcode number, you may also reserve over the phone or at the main desk of the library.
The Friends of the Library have purchased a limited number of day passes to Hood’s Pond, available for Friends members. These one-day guest passes are a $15 value and cover admission to the Pond for one carload. Please call or come into the library to reserve and pick up your pass. Due to the limited number of passes, a household may only request this pass once per season. This is a great opportunity for families new to town to check out Hood’s Pond, Topsfield’s favorite summer attraction! More information about the pond is available at www.hoodspondtopsfield.com.
