Museum Passes

Reserve a museum pass ahead before you come in to pick it up with our Tixkeeper online reservation system.
In order to use the museum passes, you must be 18 or older and sign our museum pass acceptance form –  or be a minor age 12 or older whose parent or guardian has read and signed the museum pass acceptance form. A parent or guardian will not be able to sign for a minor if the parent/guardian has a blocked library card. (Both the minor and parent or guardian must come to the library to sign this form before borrowing a museum or park pass.)

Signing the form acknowledges a 5.00 per day late fee and agreement to pay a replacement fee for any lost or damaged pass. Passes must be returned to the Circulation Desk at Southworth Library (no book drop or other location returns).
