These museum passes are provided to Columbia County residents through a generous grant from the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation. Individual libraries may have additional passes--check with your home library.
The Columbia County Libraries Association, composed of the 11 public libraries in Columbia County, works together to serve all the residents of the county.
Print from Home: Passes may be reserved up to thirty days in advance and can be printed from home or at the library. Some museums also accept passes displayed on a phone. The 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. These passes are marked closed for the days when the museums are closed.
Pick Up/Return Pass: Passes may be reserved online for up to thirty days in advance and must be picked up at the library. The NYS Empire Pass must be picked up and returned to the same library. Empire Passes may be checked out for 3 days. Please reserve the pass for the library where you will pick up and return the pass.
MANY MUSEUMS REQUIRE TIMED RESERVATIONS. PLEASE CHECK WITH INDIVIDUAL MUSEUMS FOR REQUIREMENTS.
