General Museum Pass FAQs
How do I reserve a Pass?
All museum passes are reserved online. You must have a PIN/password for your library account.
Don’t have or know your password for your library account? Visit search.livebrary.com/patroninfo to create/reset a password. You must have a valid email address on file prior to making a reservation. Stop in the Library and visit the Circulation Desk to add an email address to your library account. It is recommended you reserve passes well in advance of your planned museum visit. Passes may be reserved up to 30 days in advance. The eligible borrower’s name, telephone, email address, library card number, and Password/PIN will be required at the time of reservation.
Print at Home Pass reservations MUST be made for the DATE YOU WISH TO USE THE PASS.
Pick Up/Return at Library Pass reservations MUST be made for the DAY BEFORE YOUR VISIT.
If you must cancel your reservation, you may do so online until 24 hours prior to your reserved time slot. If you must cancel within 24 hours of your reserved time slot, please contact the library. Be sure to contact the Library as soon as possible so the pass can be made available to other patrons.
How many days can I borrow the Pass?
Print at Home Passes are reserved for, and only valid on, the day of your museum visit and do NOT need to be returned.
Pick Up/Return at Library Passes may be borrowed for 3 days, which includes the day it is picked up and the day it is due for return. For example, if your visit is for a Sunday, you may pick up the pass on Saturday, and it would be due for return on Monday, one hour prior to the Library’s closing time. If you wish to use the pass on a day the Library is closed, it must be reserved for pick up on the day prior to the Library’s closed date and will be due the next day the Library is open.
If the Pick Up/Return at Library Pass is not returned on time, an extended use fee of $20 will apply for EACH DAY it is late.
How do I go about picking up my reserved Pass?
Print at Home Passes are printed either at home or in the library during our normal business hours.
Pick Up/Return at Library Passes are picked up at the Circulation Desk on the designated date reserved. Borrowers will be required to present their library card and sign a museum pass user agreement at the time the pass is checked out. The pass must be checked out to the cardholder that the reservation was made under. The Library is not obligated to honor your reservation if the pass is not picked up on the designated reserved date. Passes that are not picked up on the designated reserved date are considered forfeited.
How many passes may I reserve/borrow at one time?
A maximum of one (1) pass per household/family may be borrowed at one time. The same pass may not be reserved more than once per month.
When must the Pass be returned?
Print at Home Passes do NOT need to be returned
Pick Up/Return at Library Passes must be returned to the Circulation Desk one hour prior to Library closing on the day it is due. If the pass is not returned on time, an extended use fee of $20 will apply for each day it is late. Passes may NOT be renewed. It is the borrower’s responsibility to know library hours and to ensure that the pass is returned on time. Passes must be given to a staff member at the Circulation Desk. DO NOT LEAVE PASSES ON THE COUNTER OR IN THE BOOK DROP.
What if I lose or damage the Pick Up/Return at Library Pass?
As stated in the user agreement contract at checkout, borrowers will be responsible to pay the full replacement cost of any pass that is lost or damaged during their loan period. The borrower will also be responsible for any fees/charges the Library incurs as a result of non-return of a Museum Pass, which includes but is not limited to entry fees for the next borrower.
You are responsible for planning your own trip. Please contact the venue before your visit. Each museum sets its own restrictions and visiting guidelines and you must comply with their rules. Some venues may require reservations, have limited hours/ services or charge additional fees for special events or exhibits.
The Library is not responsible for museum closures and recommends that patrons call museums before reserving passes.
