COVID-19 Alert

Confirm with Museum/Zoo Before Visiting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many museums, zoos, and other public attractions may be closed, operating with special hours or restrictions, or temporarily restricting discount passes. Make sure to contact the museum or zoo directly before planning your visit.

Borrowing Guidelines

  • Passes may be reserved and printed up to 30 days in advance.
  • Passes are valid only on your reserved date.
  • Maximum limit of 2 unique passes per family, per month.

Printable Passes

You can print most of our passes from home! Printable passes can be reserved and printed even when the library is closed, and they don’t need to be returned to the library. The system will only give you one chance to print, right after you register. If you have trouble, please give us a call.

Traditional Passes

Traditional passes cannot be printed, and must be picked up and returned to the library.

These passes may be picked up after 1:00 pm the day before the reservation date, and must be returned by 12:00 noon the day after the reservation date. The Library is closed Sundays, so passes for that day need to be picked up on Saturday. They may be returned in the bookdrop in their protective sleeve.

The late fee for traditional passes is $10 per day.
