Museum Pass Rules
You must be at least 18 years of age to book a museum pass. For Long Beach Public Library card holders only. Library cards are not transferable.
Your card must be clear of all overdues and fines in order for you to check out a museum pass. Passes are not transferable.
Two museums per family or household may be booked in the current two month booking period. Two members of the household may not book the same pass simultaneously. Duplicate reservations will be cancelled.
PRINT ON DEMAND passes must be printed at the time of reservation. They are only good for the day printed on the pass. They do not need to be returned to the library.
PICK-UP/RETURN passes must be picked up and returned at the Reference Desk. Passes may not be returned in the Book Drop. If the pass is returned in the Book Drop, a $5 fee will be imposed.
PICK-UP/RETURN passes are booked for a 3-day period. Bookings can be done in person or online through the Library’s website. You should book in advance.
The overdue fee for PICK UP/RETURN passes is $5 per day. The charge for a lost pass will be the cost of the pass (cost varies). Failure to return passes on time may jeopardize your ability to take out passes in future.
PICK UP/RETURN passes must be brought back on the third day at least one half-hour before closing.
The Library is not responsible . . .
• if the museum is closed; if the Library must close for emergency.
• if the museum refuses to accept the pass;
• if the museum accepts the pass for certain exhibits and not others;
• if the person who had the pass before you does not bring it back on time.
