Museum passes may be borrowed, free of charge, by Bryant Library cardholders (over 18 years of age) who have a library card in good standing. All passes may be reserved up to TWO months in advance. Patrons may reserve each museum pass once - in a 30-day period.
The Bryant Library offers 2 types of Museum Passes:
