We have three attraction passes to offer our Milton library patrons this year: Vermont State Parks, Vermont State Historic Sites, and ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain.

The Vermont States Parks and Vermont State Historic Sites passes are available on a first come first serve basis to Milton residents with a Milton Public Library card. Call the library at 802-893-4644 to reserve the pass on the morning you want to use it (we open at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday).  We’ll provide it to you via curbside pickup.

Passes are due back the same day, in the book return behind the library. Failure to return the pass the same day could result in loss of the privilege to check out the passes. Patrons are financially responsible for lost passes.
