Museum Passes

The Friends of the Free Public Library of Monroe Township have generously provided funds for the purchase of museum passes for the benefit of Monroe Township library card-holders.

The Library is offering a museum pass program as part of its mission to provide educational, professional, cultural, and recreational information and services.

Who can check out a Monroe Township Library museum pass?
Monroe Township adult cardholders (ages 18 years and older) in good standing (no overdue materials and less than $10.00 in fines) are eligible to check out our Museum passes. Only one museum pass may be borrowed at a time per family. Cardholders must sign a loan agreement before checking out the pass.

Where can I pick up a pass?
All passes must be picked up at the Monroe Township Public Library Circulation Desk.

Where can I return a pass?
All passes must be returned only to the Monroe Township Public Library Circulation Desk. Please hand the plastic case directly to a staff member, and be sure that the pass is returned with the case. Museum passes cannot be returned via the inside or outside book drop, or to any other library.

Can I reserve a pass for pick-up?
No. Passes are strictly on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved or held for a patron.

How long can I keep a pass?
A museum pass may be checked out for 4 days and is not renewable.

What if I don't return the pass on time?
A late fee of $5.00 per day will apply, up to the full cost of the museum pass.

What if I lose the museum pass or it is stolen, damaged or mutilated?
The patron on whose library card the pass has been borrowed is responsible for the full replacement cost of the pass. (The cost of the pass varies by museum.) There is a $3.00 fee for loss or damage of the case.

The current museum pass replacement costs are as follows:
Academy of Natural Sciences - $199
Battleship New Jersey - $250
Garden State Discovery Museum - $400
Grounds for Sculpture - $500
Independence Seaport Museum - $150
Wheaton Arts & Cultural Center - $100

Borrowers are responsible for calling or checking the museum website directly for hours of operation, current exhibits, parking and directions. Each museum determines the rules and regulations governing the use of its Museum Pass. The Museum Pass may not provide admission to all exhibits at the museum. The Library assumes no responsibility of any kind arising out of the use of Museum Passes or any parking accommodations.
