May 2017: Issue No. 18
Dear Library Community,

We have some very exciting news this month!   The Fairview Public Library, with a gift from the Oh Family of Fairview, are pleased to offer the Museum Pass Program to Fairview residents.  This exciting program allows residents who have a valid Fairview library card in good standing (no fines or overdue items) to visit local museums in New Jersey and New York for free.  


According to the National Endowment for the Arts: "There's  no shortage  of research indicating the benefits of museum visits for children. They can provide memorable, immersive learning experiences, provoke imagination, introduce unknown worlds and subject matter, and offer unique environments for quality time with family."
