Fiends of Hill Library (FHL) is the proud sponsor of Hill Library’s Museum Program. The Program provides an opportunity for Strafford residents to experience all the great New England museums.
Through this Program, the FHL will reimburse admission charges to any museum in New England at a rate of $35 per family (not to exceed the admission fees), with one reimbursement per family per year.
To qualify, you must be a current library card holder with no overdue items or unpaid fines on your card. To receive reimbursement, qualifying patrons must submit a request form with receipt from your visit showing the full cost, the number of attendees, and the date. Request forms are available for download or can be picked up at Hill Library.
