Museum Pass Guidelines

Reserve a Museum Pass with the Belmont Public Library and save money!  Please read our Museum Pass Policy for information on eligibility, penalties and fines. Our passes are provided by the Friends of the Belmont Public Library – without them, this program would not be possible.
