What's New About Museum Passes
The library has a versatile collection of museum passes that, depending on the museum, will provide visitors with either discounted or free admission for up to a specified number of people. So what's new about museum passes? To help you plan your visit, you may now reserve the library's museum passes up to 30 days in advance. In addition, most museum passes are printed on demand as part of the reservation process - from the comfort of your home or while at the library. Several passes must still be borrowed from and returned to the library, but these may also be reserved ahead of time.
To check the availability of museum passes and make a reservation,
