Free Museum Passes Through KCLS

If you're like me, a trip with my little one to BAM or KidsQuest is that much sweeter if it comes with a price tag of $0. Luckily for us, the King County Library System is reprising its free museum pass program. You can reserve your passes online here: http://www.kcls.org/programs/museumpasses.cfm, but don't delay, they tend to run out quickly!
