Museum Passes

In response to the spread of COVID-19, museums and other public institutions are temporarily closing.  Please check individual websites for information before placing a museum pass reservation.

Museum Pass Policy

  • Museum passes are available to Bellmore Memorial Library cardholders who are at least 18 years old. The cardholder must be in good standing. Cardholders with fines of $5.00 or more on their account are ineligible to make reservations.
  • A cardholder may borrow only one pass at a time and each individual museum pass may be borrowed no more than once every 30 days. Passes may be reserved up to 90 days in advance.
  • There is a late fee of $10.00 per day on each pass. Cardholders are required to return all passes on time, since another cardholder may have a pending reservation.
  • It is the cardholder’s responsibility to call the museums directly for information, hours of operation, parking and/or directions, admission to special events and programming.
  • Each museum reserves the right to determine the rules and regulations governing the use of the museum pass and to change them at will. Any fee changes by a museum or regulation governing the use of the museum pass will not be the responsibility of the Bellmore Memorial Library.  Contact the museum for the most up to date information.
  • The Bellmore Memorial Library cardholder placing the reservation must pick up the pass.
  • By placing a reservation the cardholder shall agree to follow the Bellmore Memorial Library Museum Pass Policy.
