  • Passes are available at adult circulation desks on a walk-in basis only. 
  • Checkout is limited to one (1) per household. Passes cannot be reserved or renewed. At six (6) days overdue, borrowers will be charged the FULL replacement cost of the museum pass.
  • The charge varies from $75 to $500 depending on which museum pass was borrowed.
  • Museum passes must be returned to the circulation desk of the library from which they were borrowed.
  • PLEASE DO NOT RETURN MUSEUM PASSES IN THE BOOK DROP. 
  • Returning them any place other than the circulation desk will result in a $5.00 fee.
  • Returning museum passes late more than twice will result in losing the privilege of borrowing any pass for (6) months.
  • Due to the popularity and the limited availability of museum passes, patrons and all members of a single household are asked to wait two (2) business days before borrowing another museum pass.
