Our library passes to area museums provide admission to many great events. On Saturday, May 4 at 10am, Shaker Village in Canterbury opens for the season with the return of the Brookford Farm cows to the Village pastures, complete with fiddling and Morris Dancers. There’s still a chance to see the spectacular “Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor”, which ends May5. The Wright Museum opens its 2013 season on May 1. Trails are already open at the Squam Lake Nature Center; the library’s trail pass is ready for use. Finally, a pass to Castle in the Clouds will be available at the Nichols Library for the first time. Visitors to the CITC can enjoy the Lucknow estate and gardens, trails and work by local artists.
