Museum Passes Policy
The River Vale Public Library Museum Passes Program is sponsored through generous donations by the
Friends of the River Vale Library.
Borrowing a Pass:
River Vale Public Library Cardholders in good standing may borrow Museum Passes. Passes may be
reserved online or by speaking with Adult Services Staff. Patrons must be at least 18 years of age. All
passes are issued on a first come, first served basis. One pass per cardholder is permitted at a time.
All passes may be reserved 30 days in advance.
When picking up a physical pass, patrons must sign an acknowledgement that they have
received a copy of the lending terms.
Museum Passes must be returned in-person to a Library Staff Member.
Physical Passes lending period is for 3 days and 2 nights.
Printable Passes are reserved for a single date of use; no return is required for printable passes
Museum Passes are non-renewable.
If a patron is unable to borrow a reserved pass, the patron must cancel the reservation in advance. Cancellations can be made through the online portal or by contacting an Adult Services Staff Member. Failure to cancel a reserved item will result in a ‘no-show’ flag on the account that will affect the ability to borrow museum passes in the future.
Please note that museums may have additional requirements for visitation including but not limited to
operating hours, timed entry tickets, or COVID-19 admission guidelines. Patrons are responsible for
contacting the museum for any additional requirements to entry.
There is no charge to reserve a pass and no deposit is required.
Late Fee: $5 per day. After 1 week, patron must pay the full replacement cost.
Lost/Damaged Pass: Patron is responsible for the full replacement cost.
The River Vale Public Library reserves the right to amend and change these guidelines at any time.
