Museum Pass Kits available!

Take advantage of our Museum Pass Kits to explore science and visit the Sciencenter, Museum of the Earth, and the Cayuga Nature Center for free. 

Two kits come with science experiment books and passes to the Sciencenter in Ithaca. The pass provides free admission to the Sciencenter for up to two adults and their children, all living in the same household. The Sciencenter requires those using the pass to also provide their library card and a photo ID at Sciencenter front desk.

Another kit contains a picture book explaining how a dinosaur skeleton got to the museum, with a pass to the Museum of the Earth and the Cayuga Nature Center. Visitors also receive discount member prices for special events at either one. The pass admits up to two adults and all children under age of 18.

In return for using the free passes, Candor Library asks that people fill out a survey. If you don’t have a library card, you can get one at the circulation desk in the library. The museum kits were created by the Finger Lakes Library System with funding provided by the Myrtle Dee Nash Memorial Fund.

Summer Reading begins July 5!


The Summer Reading program is ready to go ~ and sign-ups begin July 5th. Every reader receives a packet stuffed with goodies: a reading log, stickers, pencil, book mark, and a Bingo game. Make sure you cross out the challenges as you go along, because there's a chance to enter your completed Bingo Sheet for a prize drawing.

There's also a chance to enter the Writing & Illustrating challenge -  check out the info in your folder.

Every reader who signs up for Summer Reading gets to choose a free book, as well as a fuzzy sea creature to be their reading buddy. There are sea stars, lobsters, fish, whales, and lots of other sea creatures just waiting to be adopted. They love listening to stories, and might even inspire a few stories of their own.

And did I hear "prizes" being mentioned? There are lots of opportunities to win prizes. In addition to the Bingo prize and the Writing & Illustrating prize, there are reading prizes. Each week you can get tickets for the books you read (or, if they're long books, for the number of pages you read. At the end of summer tickets will be drawn out of the cans to see who wins a gift certificate at B&N.
