Go Free To Museums When You Want To -Discover and Go

Go Free To Museums When You Want To Discover and GoOne of the things that I love about Discover and Go (free museum and attraction passes/discounts) is that you don’t have to wait for a Free Day! You can go when you want to or when you have guests in town.  So if you haven’t checked out Discover and Go, do it now.  Several Bay area school districts will have their first vacation at the end of September.
Also as school begins, some of the locations will be great resources for homework and projects.
Discover and Go has expanded to most of the libraries in the Bay area and also Southern California too.  Here are your links for more info.
Discover and Go Site (search for your library first, then log in)
Discover and Go Partners/Venues: This list changes depending upon which library system you use, but the list is impressive!
