From the Director
The East Longmeadow Public Library is pleased to announce its participation once again in the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) “Use Nature as Your Library” Program. As part of this program, the library has made available for borrowing a Massachusetts “Parks Pass” which can be used to park free at over 50 day-use facilities in the state parks system through December 31, 2014. In order to borrow the “Parks Pass”, we require that you have a valid library card either from our library or another C/WMars library. You must show your library card when you pick up the pass. The pass is valid for one vehicle only (buses or vans excluded) and must be returned to the East Longmeadow Library within 3 days. More information on how to borrow the “Parks Pass” is available by either visiting or calling the library (413-525-5400 x1511). The Department of Conservation and Recreation provides more information about this program on their website. Make plans this year to explore over 449,000 acres of parks, forests, mountains and beaches right in your own backyard. By participating in this program, your local public library would like to help you make the most of your visit!
