Free Maine Park Passes!
Request at Circulation Desk
The Dyer Library has partnered with the Maine Wildlife Park, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and Maine State Parks to provide free and discounted park passes for our library patrons. New in 2023, we are happy to add two more options; Railway Village Museum and the Children's Museum and Theatre! We strongly recommend calling ahead of your planned trip to reserve your park pass. The library only has one pass per day for these parks and they do go quickly. Each park pass has their own set of rules and restrictions so please review them carefully. You must have a current library account that is in good standing when making a reservation.
