If your holiday plans include travel of the nearby variety, the latest edition of Fun with the Family, Connecticut : Hundreds of Day Trips with the Kids by Doe Boyle may be helpful. The book is arranged by county and provides much needed information for each place listed; top picks by country and appeal by age group are very useful features. Something for everyone summarizes the scope of this family-friendly guide book.

Pair the above with Connecticut Restaurants 2009/10, an outstanding Zagat Guide which covers Connecticut, plus near-by Berkshires and New York dining establishments. The directory surveys and rates restaurants and offers a stunning array of indexes to help guide your choices.

The Library's Museum Pass Program
Also keep in mind the library's circulating museum pass program, funded by the Friends of the East Hampton Public Library. Courtesy of the CT Science Center, the library also provides discounted admission coupons to this latest addition to our state's portfolio of premier attractions. Coupons, while they last, offer a 20% discount off family admission; save about $12 for a family of four.

This Saturday, December 5 @ The CT Science Center
If your calendar is uncluttered, enjoy Half Price Day at the Science Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Discount applies to general admission only; the offer may not be combined with the library's coupon program.
