MUSEUM PASS PROGRAM
The Library is proud to offer an exciting new service! We will be circulating museum passes for popular museums in our area: Intrepid Air & Space Museum in New York City, Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, Popcorn Park Zoo in Forked River, and the Monmouth Museum at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. The passes are designed for use by a family and each museum specifies how many people will be admitted on one pass. The passes may be borrowed for two weeks but may not be renewed. Adult patrons reserve on one pass at a time. However, we cannot guarantee that the pass will be available on a certain date. Passes can only be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Passes will only be loaned to adults with a Long Branch Free Public Library card.
