The Museum Pass Program at the Glen Rock Library has become very popular. The Friends group has donated two additional museum passes to the existing collection of six now in circulation, due to the success of the program. Added museums are the Museum of Natural History and the New York Transit Museum.
The Natural History Museum is one of the largest museums in the world, offering a collection of over 33 million items which are displayed on a rotating basis. Located across the street from Central Park, it offers a planetarium, 45 exhibition halls and a library. Each coupon admits 1 person. Coupons are limited to 2 per household per year and are available at the Reference Desk for resident Glen Rock Library card holders in good standing. The pass to the Transit Museum located in Brooklyn admits two adults and up to four children.
You may reserve passes up to five weeks in advance. As with the other museum passes (Children’s Museum of Manhattan, The Intrepid Air, Sea, and Space Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York Historical Society and the Storm King Art Center) you will be required to fill out a borrowing form. Other rules do apply. Each day the pass is late, a fine of $10 will be charged to your Library card.
The Friends have also underwritten an online pass reservation system. Just click on “Card Benefits” from the Library’s website, www.glenrocklibrary.org.
The Friends hope that you will visit some of the world’s most vibrant museums. For further information about becoming a member of the group, please go to the Friends tab on www.glenrock.bccls.org.
