Museum Pass Policy
The Library offers two types of passes; Print on Demand passes and Pick Up/Return passes.
Print on Demand passes can be printed from home or at the Library. These passes are only valid for the date of the visit listed on the confirmation page so request your pass for the day you wish to use it. Passes must be printed to gain access to the museum.
Pick Up/Return passes are borrowed for three days. There will be a late charge of $20 per day. In the event of a non-return of a pass, the Library will add the replacement cost of the pass to your record. Passes may not be put in the book drop. *Due to Covid precautions, museum passes must temporarily be placed in the AV book drop located in the parking lot.
Museum passes may be borrowed once every 30 days by Hicksville Public Library cardholders over 18 years of age who are in good standing and are clear of fines $5.00 and over. Only one museum pass kit can be reserved at one time per address or family within a one-month period. There are no renewals for any museum passes. Patrons may not reserve two museum passes for the same day and/or pick up two museum passes on the same day with separate library cards.
Passes are subject to availability, and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis up to ninety days in advance. The Library has the right to monitor usage to ensure fairness and access for the greatest number of patrons.
Borrowers are responsible for calling the museums directly for hours of operation, parking, or directions. Each museum reserves the right to determine the rules and regulations governing the use of the museum pass. The museum pass may not provide admission to all exhibits at the museum. Passes are not valid for special events. Borrowers are advised to have a back-up plan in case the museum is unexpectedly closed, if the Library must close for emergency, or if a museum pass is not returned on time. The Library is not responsible in case any of these things happen.
