Faster Turnaround on Museum Passes at the Ridgefield Library

Several changes are coming to the museum pass program at the Library.  Starting October 1, the loan period on the passes will be 2 days.  This means, for example, when you check out a pass on Tuesday, it will be due back at the Library by Thursday. Also, passes will now be offered on a first come, first served basis.  There are no longer any reservations for passes. We hope these changes will mean quicker turnaround times on the passes, so that more of our patrons can make use of them. What has not changed is that only people with valid Ridgefield Library cards may take out museum passes.

Many passes are made available through the generosity of The Friends of the RidgefieldLibrary. The Library offers passes that give either free admission or discounted admission to such places as: American Museum of Natural History, Beardsley Zoo, Connecticut Science Center, Danbury Railway Museum, Discovery Museum, Earthplace, Guggenheim Museum, Mystic Seaport, Neuberger Museum of Art, Peabody Museum, and the Stepping Stones Museum for Children, and more.  Next time you are in the Library, stop by the Children’s Services Department to see what passes are available that day.  You never know where the Library can take you!
