No-Shows and Last Minute Cancellations

If any museum pass has been reserved and cancelled within 2 days of the reservation or is not picked up, the patron will be credited with a no-show and you will not be permitted to make future museum pass reservations for 30 days. This is to prevent others from blocking dates they do not use. A 48-hour notice of cancellation is required to avoid being considered a no-show.

Library Material Fines

Free museum passes are available to Harborfields Public Library District residents who hold an adult Harborfields Public Library Card in good standing. If the Library cardholder has excessive Library material fines ($50 or more), they will not be permitted to reserve a pass until the fine has been paid. If excessive fines are accrued after a museum pass has been reserved, the patron will not be permitted to check out a pass until the fine has been paid. Any user who loses a pass will be charged a $50 replacement cost.

Reservations

Museum passes may be reserved at the Children’s or Adult Reference Desks or online from the Library Home page. Passes may be reserved up to 30 days in advance and are subject to availability. The Library cardholder must be an adult (18 years and older). Museum passes are very popular during school vacations so please plan ahead.

Monthly Limit

A maximum of nineteen passes per family/address, per calendar month, may be borrowed, not to exceed more than one per day. Repeat visits to the same museum within the month are not permitted. To ensure fair distribution of passes, only one pass may be checked out to a Harborfields patron/family/address at any given time.

Library Responsibility Waiver
