Moments of Wonder for a Lifetime of Learning

Moments of Wonder for a Lifetime of Learning

The Durham Museum of Life and Science has joined other area attractions in offering FREE passes to the Alamance County Public Library patrons.  Located not far from downtown Durham, the Museum is situated on 84-acres and includes a two-story science center, one of the largest butterfly conservatories in the East Coast and beautiful outdoor exhibits which are safe havens for rescued black bears, lemurs, and endangered red wolves and more.

Alamance County Library patrons will be able to check out a pass that will allow entrance to up to ten people during the week and four people on the weekends.  They are available on a first-come, first-serve bases at the May Memorial Public Library in Burlington, NC.  Passes are only valid on the day requested and must be returned to a staff member at the library by its due date.

If you are unfamiliar with the Library’s ZOOM Pass Program you can also receive passes to the North Carolina Zoo, the Children’s Museum of Alamance County, the Conservators Center and the Alamance County Aquatic Centers.  How does it work?  Simply visit or call your library and present your valid library card to request a ZOOM pass, one attraction a day and one pass per household.  Tell library staff which attraction you wish to visit, what day you are going, and how many people you have in your group. Staff will provide a pass that you will present at the attraction entrance.  From there enjoy your day at one of the museums, the zoo, the aquatic center or the animal rescue center!
