Through the generosity of The Friends of the Wethersfield Public Library we have a number of passes available to various museums. These passes may be checked out just like any other library item.
About the Passes
Most passes can be checked out once per week and a maximum of twice per month. A total of two passes can be reserved and checked out each week. Due to high usage rates, the State Parks and Forests pass can only be checked out once per month June – August.
You will need a valid library card to make a museum pass reservation. Reserved passes MUST be checked out with the same card that the reservation was made with.
Passes can be picked up the day before your reservation date. All passes must be returned by 10:00 a.m. on the next day the library is open (usually the day after you use it). Passes may be placed in the bookdrop any time.
Passes must be returned to Wethersfield Library. There is a $10.00 per day fine if the pass is returned late, or returned to another library. You will be billed replacement costs for lost passes.
The passes may be reserved in advance. You may call the Library to reserve a pass or you may make your reservation online. Museum passes may be checked out by adults (18 years of age and older) using their own library card.
We encourage you to take advantage of this service!
