Museum passes are available to West Hempstead Public Library cardholders, age 18 and over, in good standing. Passes must be reserved for the day you will use the pass.
Only one pass may be checked out per family, per loan period - Monday/Tuesday, Wednesday/Thursday, Friday/Saturday/Sunday or Print-on-Demand. Each family may reserve a specific museum pass only once every 6 months. However, if a pass is available (unreserved) the same pass may be borrowed on a walk-in basis. Patrons are responsible for checking with the museum to confirm hours.
Print-on-Demand Pass: Passes may be reserved one month in advance and can be printed from home or at the Library. This pass will only be valid for the date of visit listed on the confirmation page so request the pass for the day you wish to use it.
Pick Up/Return Pass: Passes may be reserved one month in advance and picked up at the library. These passes must be returned on the last day of the loan period at the Reference Desk or in the Audio-Visual Drop-Box before 9 a.m. on the next day. For example, if you reserved a pass for Wednesday/Thursday it is due back before 9 a.m. on Friday. You may pick up your pass from the Reference Desk any time during the reserve period.
To cancel a reservation, cardholders must call the Reference Desk or cancel the reserve online. Frequent cancellations or non-pickup of passes may result in suspension of privileges for 3 months. The fine for an overdue pass is $10.00 per day. The minimum replacement cost for a lost pass is $50.00. Any fees incurred by a patron will be added to the patron's library card account. Any amounts of $25.00 or more will be reported to the library's collection agency.
