Museum Pass Basics



The Kelley Library offers museum passes for local and Boston-area museums to Kelley Library cardholders. 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.

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.

Reserving a pass: All passes must be reserved, and may be reserved up to 3 months in advance. Patrons may reserve only one pass per day. You can make a reservation in person, by phone (603-898-7064), or as a new feature, online here.

Online reservations require your library barcode and pin number. If you want to reserve a museum pass online, but don’t have a Kelley Library card yet, you can register for a card online here.

Picking up and returning your pass: You may pick up your pass the day before or the morning of your reservation. Be sure to bring your library card as the pass will be checked out to you. Passes are due back the next day the library is open. The pass must be back by 9 AM. If we are closed, return the pass in the black mailbox above the book return at the front of the building. Other families may be waiting to use the pass. Failure to return the pass will result in fines.

Canceling a pass reservation: Please be sure to call the library and cancel a pass reservation if you will not be able to use it. Other people may be interested in using the pass on that day.
