There are 2 types of passes:

1.) RETURNABLE PASSES- CT BEARDSLEY ZOO, CONNECTICUT STATE PARKS, DESTROYER ESCORT HISTORICAL MUSEUM (Albany, NY),  MARITIME AQUARIUM, MYSTIC AQUARIUM and SPRINGFIELD MUSEUMS.   These passes are reserved at the Adult Circulation Desk or by calling 860-644-1541. There is a 2 day checkout period. The passes must be returned to the Circulation desk, not in the book drop or at another library. There is a $10.00 a day overdue fine.

2.) PRINT-ON-DEMAND PASSES: Reserve and print free or discounted passes using the online system. Print-on-Demand means you are able to print out the museum pass from home or a local printer. These passes do not need to be picked up or returned to the library. These passes MUST be presented in PRINTED format. Electronic versions (on smartphones or tablets) will NOT be accepted by the museums.
You may view available passes by clicking on the museum or date and check or cancel your reservation. You will need your library card to log in.

Patrons are limited to one (1) museum visit per day. Only one (1) pass per card is allowed. You may not exceed one (1) reservation per month for the same pass.

It is recommended that you check the individual museum’s web site or call ahead prior to visiting to be certain that the museum will be open. The Museum Pass Program sponsored by the Friends of the South Windsor Library provides passes to library patrons with a valid library card to area museums and attractions.
