Thank You North Adams Library!
I've gotta' say, the free museum passes available at our local libraries are one of the best kept secrets in town. Today was the Norman Rockwell Museum
in Stockbridge! Saved $30!
(Remember your local library the next time some right-wing crank starts blabbing about "Socialism!" Taxes pay for things.)
UPDATE: And now I see that the lovely woman who loaned out the museum pass to me isn't screwing around
when it comes to overdue materials. Yikes. I'll return the pass first thing in the morning:
Last week, 15 patrons with laundry-lists of overdue books and movies were summonsed to Northern Berkshire District Court for show-cause hearings, she said.
"It was very successful -- about 3/4 of the cases were settled either before or on the day of the hearing," Gross said. We had several people bring in the missing materials before the court date."
