Museum Pass Guidelines

Borrowers must have a current Kelley Library card and must be at least 18 years old. Museum passes are either a coupon pass or a card pass. Coupons are valid only for the date printed on the coupon and do not need to be returned to the Library. Card passes are due back to the Library before 9 PM on the same day it is borrowed or in the Museum Pass Return Box before 9 AM the very next day. If the pass is for Saturday, it is due back before 9 AM on Monday.

The Library has only one card pass per museum, so it is vitally important to return the pass on time for the next family. The overdue fine is $10.00 for each day the pass is late.

Patrons may reserve the pass in advance by calling the library at 603-898-7064. Reserve passes early for weekends and school holidays. Patrons may reserve only one pass per day. Reserved passes should be picked up on the reserved date or the night before. If you cancel plans to go to the museum, please call the Library as soon as possible so another family may reserve.
