Museum Passes

The David & Joyce Milne Public Library has passes to local museums that can be checked out for a short loan period by CWMARS adult library card holders. These passes cannot be reserved* and are available on a "first come, first served" basis. One pass per card holder can be checked out. (NOT VALID DURING COVID->  You must have your physical library card to borrow a museum pass and...) they must be returned to the Milne library after use. We ask for adult library cards as our children's cards are "fine free." Children can present a parent's card to check out any museum pass available.


The way our museum passes are working during the COVID precautions is as follows...


1) patrons need to check the museum's requirements for visiting - if a reservation is required by the museum to visit their location, patrons must have their reservation made BEFORE reserving our museum pass.


2) once a reservation is made, or a specific visit plan with dates that are confirmed, patrons can contact the Milne Library to place a hold on our museum pass; we ask that you contact us AT THE MOST a week prior to your confirmed/reserved museum visit.


3) after placing a hold on our museum pass, we will check it out to you for a set amount of time to cover your visit; you can pick up the museum pass during our regular library "takeout" hours (see website home page for info).

Each museum sets its own pass rules:  how long it can be checked out, how often it can be used in a day, and how many people are covered by the pass. All this depends on the museum you are interested in visiting.

Below is a list of the museum passes that the Milne library has in its collection. The passes can be searched for in the catalog, so it's a good idea to check and see if the one you'd like to borrow has already been checked out.
