Museum Pass Reservation and Program Registration are online!

Please visit our Museum Pass Reservation Page! for passes or Calendar of Events for program registration.  You will need your library card to make the reservation.

Some passes are "tear-off" tickets and do not need to be returned. These may be picked up when requested.
  Passes that need to be returned must be returned directly to us (in person during open hours or using our Book Drop). They may be picked up the day before the pass is used to allow as many people to use the pass as possible. We ask that all returnable passes be returned by the time we open on the day following your museum visit.

For program registration, scroll down to the day of the event and click register. When signing up for Story Times scroll down to the first day of the session.
