Museum Pass Policy

Museum Pass Policy

The Museum Pass Program is operated by the Belmont Public Library and is funded by the Friends of the Belmont Public Library.  You must be a resident of Belmont to use these museum passes.

 In order to make museum passes available to as many Belmont patrons as possible, we have established the following policy.

  • It is extremely important that passes be returned promptly and we request your cooperation.
  • Borrower’s library record must be in good standing.  If delinquent ($10 or more in fines or lost material), borrowers must clear their delinquency prior to picking up a pass.
  • Only one pass may be borrowed for any one day.
  • Passes for the same museum may be borrowed no more than twice per month per family.
  • During school year vacations (September – June) only one pass may be borrowed per family during that period.
  • Patron must present his/her library card when picking up a pass.
  • Reservations may be made up to 2 months in advance dependent on availability.  There are three ways to make a reservation:
  • In person
  • Via telephone
  • Online
  • Reusable passes (Monday – Friday) are due before 9 a.m. the next morning.  Reusable Saturday / Sunday passes are due before 9 a.m. on Monday morning.  Passes must be return in person at the Reference Desk the same day you use it or before 9 a.m. the following morning through the front door pass slot. 
  • A $5.00 per day late fee will be charged.
  • Loss of a pass, failure to pick up a pass, or failure to cancel a reservation will result in the loss of museum pass borrowing privileges for 3 months
