Museum Passes

You will need to enter your library barcode number to make a museum pass reservation.

Most passes can be checked out once per week and a maximum of twice per month. A total of two passes can be reserved and checked out each week. Due to high usage rates, the State Parks and Forests pass can only be checked out once per month June - August.

Passes can be picked up the day before your reservation date.

All passes must be returned by 10:00 a.m. on the next day the library is open (usually the day after you use it). Passes may be placed in the bookdrop any time.

Passes must be returned to Wethersfield Library. There is a $10.00 per day fine if the pass is returned late, or returned to another library. You will be billed replacement costs for lost passes.
