Museum Passes

This year with the help of a grant from the Children’s Foundation of Columbia County, the Philmont Library has purchased passes to Berkshire Museum, Norman Rockwell Museum, The Troy Children’s Museum (A/K/A Troy Science Museum), USS Slater,  New York State Museum of Firefighters, and The Clark.  Added to our collection in 2015 are passes to House Tours at Olana and House Tours at Steepletop (Edna St. Vincent Millay)

 Passes can be checked out for 3 days by picking them up at the library, using your library card. Patrons will not be able to reserve the passes using the OPAC.  The passes usually admit two people.  The Norman Rockwell is a discount rather than a free pass.  Call the library for more information at 672-5010.

Welcome to our Library

Welcome to the website of the Philmont Public Library. We hope that by navigating through our offerings, you will want to visit our library in person, spending time browsing the stacks, reading the newspapers or magazines, using our public computers, checking out the latest exhibit in the Cultural Center, sharing conversation over a cup of coffee or checking out books, movies, books on tape or music CDs.

Additional information about programs and activities at the library can be found on our village website (philmont.org) or on our Facebook page. If you would like to receive e-mails about new items that have been added to the collection or upcoming programs, send your e-mail address to library@philmont.org and we will add you to our Yahoo groups.
