Not only can you borrow books at the Ainsworth Public Library, but we also have a discounted pass to the ECHO Lake Aquarium & Science Center in Burlington, Vermont that you can checkout! The pass is valid daily for two adults and three children to pay a reduced admission of $4.00 per person to visit the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain.

Just ask at the library’s circulation desk to “borrow the Echo pass.” Show the pass to the staff at the front desk at the ECHO Lake Aquarium & Science Center. Then, return the pass to the library so another family can experience ECHO at the same discounted rate.
