How Does the Museum Pass Reservation System work?
Printable Passes may be reserved up to 30 days in advance online, by phone at (860) 632-3464, or in person at the library. Non-Printable Passes are available on a first come, first served. You must have a public library card registered in our library consortium to check-out a museum pass.

How do I pick up my pass?
If you reserve your pass online at home, please print the confirmation letter. This will act as your pass that you present to the museum. If you reserve your pass at the library, the reference librarian will print out the pass for you. You have a choice to have the confirmation sent to your email - however, please make sure you have a printed copy with you.

Are there any limits or penalties? 
Only one pass per patron may be checked out per day. There are no late charges for printed museum passes, as they are only good for one day. Non-printable passes picked up at the library are good for a period of 3 days. These passes are $2.00 per day if late.

What does the pass allow me to do? 
Passes allow a set number of people to attend the attraction or museum for a reduced rate, or for free admission. Patrons must abide by the conditions that each location sets forth. Passes may or may not cover the total cost of admission. It is a good idea to check with the museum you are interested in ahead of time for the most up-to-date information.

How do I cancel a reservation? 
If you reserve a pass and change your plans, you may call the library to cancel at (860) 632-3464.
