The Garden City Public Library, through the generosity of the Friends of the Garden City Public Library, offers free museum passes to the Cradle of Aviation, the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, Old Westbury Gardens and the Nassau County Museum of Art.

Effective Feb. 1, the library is making changes to the user agreement and the policies governing the use of the passes. The new policies are as follows: Passes placed in the book drop will be charged a $10 fee and late charges are $20 per day.

The passes are available only to Garden City Public Library cardholders in good standing who have signed the Museum Pass User Agreement.

Museum passes may be reserved in advance and must be checked out by an adult (18 years and older) family member. Reservations will be taken up to one month in advance of the desired date, subject to availability on a first come, first served basis. Reservations must be done in person at the Reference Desk and will not be taken over the phone.

Only one pass may be borrowed at a time. Only one pass per museum may be borrowed per household within a six-month period. The passes may be borrowed for three days and must be returned by one hour before the library closes on the day the pass is due.

If due back on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday the pass must be returned by 8 p.m. and for a Tuesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday the pass must be returned by 4 p.m. The day the pass is picked up is considered the first day. The passes must be returned to the Reference Desk during library operating hours.

Late charges are $20 per day. In the event that a pass is not returned and the library pays an entrance fee for the next user, that entrance fee will be added to the late fees. There is a $5 cancellation charge if it is less than 48 hours before the reserved date. Any user who loses a pass will be charged the replacement cost of that museum pass.

Patrons should call the museum directly for information on hours of operation, parking and/or directions. Each museum reserves the right to determine the rules and regulations governing the use of the museum pass.
