Passes to Area Attractions
The Friends of the Rockville Public Library purchase passes to a number of museums in the area. The discounts off the original entry fees vary according to the individual museum’s policy. Passes may be borrowed for three days and there is a $2 overdue fine for each day that the pass is late. Due to the popularity of these passes, they may not be reserved. They may be borrowed on a first come, first-served basis and are limited to one per family. A phone call may be made to the circulation desk to request that a pass is held at the desk for a period of no longer than 30 minutes allowing for the patron to get to the library.
Clicking on the museum name will take you to their website for more information and open/closed dates.
Please note that passes are available only to adult holders of Rockville Public Library cards.
