There’s lots to borrow from the library beyond books and movies!

Museum Passes

Each Museum Pass provides free or discounted admission for multiple people.

Passes can be checked out for 3 days by any adult with a library card in good standing (no overdue items and under $10 in charges).

The passes cannot be reserved ahead of time, but can be placed on hold by calling the library and asking to have the pass held at the desk for up to 24 hours.

Available passes:

(or see available passes on Google maps)

These passes are funded by a grant from the Global Foundries Town of Malta Foundation.

Lego Robotics Kits

The library’s four LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robotics kits are available for a 14 day loan from the Malta Branch for home use.

With a kit, you can build one of many different kinds of robots, following plans from LEGO or other sources, and then program your robot from a PC or tablet.

You can download the free programming software from LEGO onto your own device, or borrow a laptop with the software already installed.

LEGO’s software is drag-and-drop graphic programming suitable for the recommended 10+ age group. Other more advanced programming languages such as Python and RobotC can also be used.

EV3 extension kits are also available for building even more elaborate robots.

Kits and computers are only available for pickup at the Malta Branch, and must be returned inside the Malta Branch during open hours.
