How does it work?
The Jersey City Free Public Library is delighted to provide adult cardholders in good standing with the opportunity to access a variety of museums. We offer both passes (laminated cards with barcodes) and vouchers (paper coupons), depending on the museum’s requirements.
Obtaining a Pass
To obtain a pass or voucher, simply visit the Lending Department at the Priscilla Gardner Main Library. These are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and we are unable to accommodate holds or reservations. Each library card is eligible for one pass or voucher at a time, and passes are available for a 3-day loan period. Unfortunately, we cannot renew passes.
To ensure availability, we recommend calling the Lending Department at 201-547-4526 before your visit.
Once you’ve finished exploring the museum, please return the passes to the Lending Department. However, there’s no need to return vouchers.
Please be aware that patrons are responsible for any lost or stolen passes. If a pass is not returned within 5 days of the due date, a $50 replacement fee will be assessed.
Each museum pass and voucher comes with its own unique restrictions and conditions. For more information, consult the details provided below and visit the museum’s website to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience.
