Well, we know every month is reading month, but Amazon has a cool Book Bingo card you can download. You could even use it as a card for your reading throughout the year, if you didn’t have the time to read a book a day 😉

dinosaurHARVARD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

Dinosaurs, etc.! The Millicent Library has passes to the Museum of Natural History in Cambridge.
There’s something here for adults and kids. Animals and minerals from all over the world and the famous glass flowers are featured. Check the Harvard Museum’s website for more details.
The passes (with a library card or proof of Mass. residence) will admit up to 4 people for $6 each and are good for the neighboring Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. The passes are funded by friends of late Harvard Professor John Badwey, who was a library trustee and an active resident of the town. If you get a pass now, you don’t have to return it and it’s good for one time between now and October.

Don’t Forget Our Online Magazine Databases
If you are looking up information in magazines, check out the Databases and Passes tab above. You can access many of these even if you don’t live in Fairhaven, and we also do have some that are for Fairhaven cardholders only (you need your library card number), like the very popular Consumer Reports Magazine. They are not cheap, so we want them to be used!!!
