The Friends of the Jones Libraries provide passes to area museums and cultural institutions that library cardholders may borrow. Some of these passes allow free admission and others allow discounted admission. The number of adults and children admitted varies from pass to pass.
We have two kinds of museum passes:
We are excited to offer a print-on-demand system for several of our museum passes. Patrons no longer need to visit the library to borrow and return circulating passes. Instead, by making a reservation, you generate a single-use pass that can be printed anywhere and presented at the museum on the date of your reservation.
For additional information about our print-on-demand passes, including information about admission discounts and limitations, please visit our reservation portal.
IMPORTANT: We cannot guarantee that our printable passes will be accepted. You will need to verify that the museum is open and you may need to contact the museum directly to determine if and how the print-on-demand pass can be used. Also, museums may require advanced, timed reservations in addition to our pass. Select a museum logo on this page to visit that museum's website where you can verify these requirements.
NEED TO PRINT A PASS? Consider our print-from-home service.
While viewing the pass in your browser or email, select print and choose "Save as PDF" from the printer selection drop-down menu. Then send us the PDF, we'll print it, and you can pick it up the next business day at the Jones Library.
Branch passes cannot be reserved online at this time. Please call ahead during our open hours for availability. Passes are first-come, first-served and are not guaranteed.
For additional information about our branch passes, including information about admission discounts and limitations, please see our Museum Pass Brochure (PDF). [Please note that the brochure doesn't yet reflect recent additions to our museum pass program.]
