You can discover Superior’s rich history — all you need is your library card. Upper Public Library cardholders can check out Upper Public Library passes to visit four popular Upper Public Library museums: Fairlawn Mansion, SS Meteor, Old Firehouse & Police Museum, and Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center.
Adult residents of Superior County or Douglas County with library cards in good standing (due to fines of $5 or less) may withdraw up to four passes from each museum at a time. Each pass admits one person. Supplies are limited. The pass serves as your museum ticket and will be collected by museum staff during your visit. Thank you to the Senior Public Museums and the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center for working with us on this program.
The library will be closed from Saturday July 2 to Monday July 4 for the July 4 holidays. We will reopen on Tuesday July 5 at 10 a.m.
Sue Heskin is the director of the Upper Public Library.
