Bedrock Gardens

The family admission pass provides free admission to two adults, children and grandchildren.

Bedrock Gardens is an emerging public garden that integrates ususual botanical specimens and unique sculpture into an inspiring landscape journey. This 30-acre site is transitioning from a historic farm and private garden to a public oasis of art, horticulture, and inspiration. Visit a garden that the Boston Globe described as "one of the most beautiful and intriguing landscapes in New Hampshire."


Children's Museum of NH

Thanks to a generous donation by the Friends of the Barrington Library, we have a pass to the Children's Museum of NH! This pass provides 50% off admission to four people. Please call us before you make a reservation on the Children's Museum website to see if our pass is available the day you would like to go, and then make a reservation on their website. You will need to pick up the pass in person at the Library. Please note that visits to the Children's Museum will NOT be covered by the reimbursement program. We ask that you use the Library's pass instead.


Currier Museum of Art

The Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH pass provides a discount of 50% off general admission for two adults (ages 18 and over). All youth family members (ages 12-17) and children (ages 11 and under) are admitted free with accompanying adults with the pass. We are able to give two passes out to Barrington families each day. Please note the Museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday, except for some Monday holidays. Check their calendar to confirm their hours and call the Library to reserve the pass on the day you would like to go.

 


NH State Parks

The NH State Parks Pass is available to all Barrington residents and allows free entry for two adults and up to four dependents into many of the state parks throughout New Hampshire. (Flume Gorge, Cannon Mtn. Aerial Tramway, Hampton Beach- South Beach, Wallis Sands, metered parking or camping are not included in this pass).

Just give the Library a call or come into the Library to reserve the pass. The actual paper pass must be picked up prior to your park visit as it will be used to gain entry into the park. These passes are one use only, please do not return them to the Library. There is only one pass per day available and they are first come, first serve.

This year the NH Division of Parks and Rec is requiring visitors to use advance day reservations. Making an advance day reservation is the only way to guarantee entry into the park you wish to go to. Getting the pass from the Library DOES NOT guarantee entry. When making this reservation you will be charged a $1.00 non-refundable fee. Also, to avoid the admission fee when making the reservation you must indicate you have a library pass, which you will hand in when you arrive at the park.


This pass has been paid for by the Friends of the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Recreation Department in a joint effort to get folks of all abilities and ages to explore the recreational opportunities and beauty New Hampshire has to offer at over 90 state park properties.


Seacoast Science Center

This pass provides 50% off admission to two adults and up to to four children. You are required to purchase tickets in advance on the Seacoast Science Center's website. Please be sure to call the Library before purchasing your tickets to ensure that our pass is available the day you would like to go. Under Admission Ticket, choose "Pass Holder Admission" and choose the date you would like to attend. You can also book your visit by calling the Center at (603) 433-1574. You will need to pick up the pass in person at the Library and bring it with you when you check in. Please note that visits to the Seacoast Science Center will NOT be covered by the reimbursement program.

Museum Reimbursement Program

Supported by funds raised by the Friends of the Barrington Public Library

Want to visit a museum in New England? The Friends of the Barrington Public Library have set aside funds each year to reimburse Barrington residents for visits to other museums!

Regional museums are a great cultural, educational and recreational resource. The Friends of the Barrington Public Library have created a small fund to encourage Barrington residents to visit some of the many wonderful museums throughout New England. Reimbursements will be made on a first come, first served basis until the fund is exhausted for the year.

Rules of the Program:

  • Up to $25.00 per visit/per year/per household will be reimbursed, i.e. each household (family members at the same address) may only be reimbursed once each calendar year (Jan. - Dec.).
  • You must submit a receipt from your visit or membership fee showing the full cost and the date.
  • Forms to submit requests can be found at the Library or Click Here
  • Reimbursements will be made on a first come, first served basis, until the fund is exhausted for the year.
  • This program is only open to Barrington residents, non-resident cardholders are not eligible.
  • No outstanding fines or fees may be on your family’s cards.
  • The reimbursement program cannot be used for visits to the museums/parks listed above, since funding has already been allocated to purchasing these passes. Please use the Library's pass instead. Thank you for understanding!
