Thomaston Public Library patrons now have the opportunity to check out passes to the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. Two sets of two passes are available, allowing patrons full access to the museum including the Wyeth Center, which is dedicated to the three generations of the Wyeth family; the Farnsworth Homestead, a historic property and former home of the museum's original benefactor; and the Olson House in Cushing, a separate building filled with the works of Andrew Wyeth and itself a subject of many of the artist's paintings.

To check out museum passes, patrons must have a current library card and deposit $5 per pass, which will be re-imbrued upon return of the passes. Passes have a three-day check-out window and are good for any time the museum is open. Children younger than 17 get into the Farnsworth for free.
