Museum of the Month Highlight
Did you know you can borrow a museum pass with your valid Glen Rock adult resident library card? The Friends of the Library sponsor nine passes, saving you and your companions a lot of money! This month we’re highlighting the Montclair Art Museum, a gem just a ½ hour’s drive away. Beginning on February 9, “MAM” is exhibiting New Directions in Fiber Art, featuring traditional and contemporary fibrous materials and methods. MAM’s permanent collection includes a large display of Native American artifacts, works by George Innes and sculptures. There are two passes to borrow (one per household every 60 days). Each pass admits 2 adults and any children from your household. Using this pass helps you save up to $24.00. Use your savings to stroll the boutiques or nosh at one of many dining destinations! Reserve your pass by contacting the Library or through our website’s online reservation system.
