Timberland Library Card =
Free Admission to Hands on Children’s Museum
According to an email I just received from a Timberland Library representative:
“Timberland has a limited number of passes for the Hands On Children’s Museum each month. You would need to have a Timberland library card in order to check out a pass.
The Olympia, Tumwater, and Lacey branches of Timberland Regional Library System each have 3 passes available for the first half of the month. The other branches have 1 pass each for the first half of the month and 1 pass for the second half of the month. These passes are checked out on a first come first served basis. A pass may be used for two adults and any children in your household that are under 17 years of age. Adults must be with a child in order to visit the Hand’s On Children’s Museum.”
