We Have Museum Passes!

We have a wonderful new option available at our library for patrons…..museum passes!  Now you can come in, take out a museum pass for one of several great Ottawa and Ottawa area museums, and use them to get into the museum for free!  Each pass is a little different, but they’ll make family outings a breeze!

Museum passes

Here’s how they work. Come to the library to pick up one of the passes (or call us and reserve a pass—it must be picked up that day).  You’ll have the pass for the next TWO days, and then the pass will have to be returned the following day.  That works out to be four days.

Day one….pick up the pass.

Day two & day three…..use the pass.

Day four….return the pass.

Fines are $1 per day if the pass is not returned on time.  Please make sure you know which day you have to return it to avoid BIG late fees!

We have multiple copies of each museum pass, but they’re pretty popular, so you might have to wait to get the one you want. They each also come with their own instructions….most are good for a maximum of 5 (FIVE) people (some are good for only 2 adults and 3 children, others allow 3 adults maximum, with the total number of people being five.)  Please make sure you ask at the front  desk so you know who is included in each pass. 

While these passes might not cover every member of your family, they will certainly help with the admission costs! And these aren’t only for families.  These are great for couples, people enjoying retirement and more!  It’s an exciting new venture for our library and we’re happy to be able to offer them to our patrons. Happy Museuming! (Okay, I know this isn’t a real word.)
