The Museum Pass Policy is as follows:

1. The passes may be borrowed only by  library card holders ages 18 and over who are in good standing.

2. Each museum pass is loaned for a three (3) day period (e.g. pick up on Monday, return by Thursday).  Renewals will not be allowed.

3. Two passes may be borrowed per household at a time.

4. A patron may reserve a pass by phone to be picked up the same day during regular Library hours of operation. Patrons may also reserve a pass the day before. If it has not been picked up by noon the following day, the reservation will be cancelled.  Passes will also be available on a first-come, first-served walk-in basis.

5. Passes may be picked up only by the reserving patron, who must present his/her valid library card or photo ID.

6. Passes must be picked up from and returned to Rachel Kohl’s Circulation Desk. Passes may not be returned in the book drops or to other libraries. Museum passes found to have been left in a book drop or at another library will incur a $5.00 fine.

7. Each museum pass may be loaned to someone in the same household only once in a two month period, except on a walk-in basis.

8. A fine of $10.00 per day will be charged for each day that a museum pass is overdue, including any day that the library is scheduled to be closed, except for an unscheduled closing due to weather or other emergency conditions.

9. Failure to return the museum pass will result in a fine equal to the replacement cost of the pass, plus a $10.00 service fee.

10. Library patrons checking out a pass are responsible for carefully reading the museum guidelines since each of the museums sets its own rules and regulations for the passes.  The library assumes no responsibility for any misunderstandings that a patron may have regarding the terms of a particular pass.
