Passes to museums, historical sites and attractions can be printed on demand or picked up in the Youth Services Department during regular library hours. Pass terms and conditions have changed so please read carefully below. Have questions, call the library at 203. 488. 1441. ext. 321.

  • Passes can be reserved up to 90 days in advance
  • Patrons can reserve/check-out a total of 5 passes per month
  • Patrons can reserve/check-out the same pass a total of 3 times per month
  • The icons below indicate that the pass can be printed or emailed on demand so you do not have to come to the library to check-out the pass 
  • Passes without this icon are physical so they still need to be checked-in and out in the Youth Services Department.
