Museum Passes

Did you know that the library offers passes to local museums and other venues that you can borrow?

  • You must present your valid library card with less than $5.00 in fines to borrow
  • Passes may be reserved by telephone, or visiting the library.
  • Passes can be reserved up to one week in advance.
  • An individual or family may borrow 1 pass at a time.
  • The pass is for general admission and may not cover admission to special exhibits or programs.
  • Some passes are coupons that do not need to be returned, others are passes that must be returned.
  • Late fees for overdue museum passes are $5.00 per day. The charge for a lost pass is the cost of that pass.
  • Check the website of the venue you plan to visit for additional information and schedule changes.
  • Passes must be returned at the desk and not in the outside book return.
