The adventure begins here! The library has FREE passes to 19 area museums and attractions around Long Island and New York City that your family can visit. Please read the following rules and choose “I ACCEPT” at the bottom, then make a reservation from the provided list of available passes and dates.
SACHEM CARDHOLDERS CAN NOW PURCHASE DISCOUNTED TICKETS TO THE BRONX ZOO, RIVERHEAD AQUARIUM, AND NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN AT THE WELCOME DESK!
Adult cardholders, 18 and over, should select the date of your intended visit. Then select the museum you want to attend. All reservations should be made for the actual date of your intended visit and can be made up to two months in advance. Each museum reserves the right to determine the rules and regulations governing usage.
The pass may be picked up on the day before your visit to the museum and will be checked out on the Sachem Library card used to make the reservation. The pass is due back to the library the day after your scheduled visit, with the following exceptions: Passes are not due on Sundays, New Year’s Eve, the day before Thanksgiving, or any day the library is closed. The due date will be indicated on the slip given to you at checkout. (The American Museum of Natural History is on a voucher system, and these one-time use vouchers do not need to be returned.)
A $20 per day fee will be charged to your library card if the pass is returned late.
A replacement fee equal to the full value of the missing pass will be charged to your card.
Each Sachem Public Library cardholder 18 years of age and older may check out one Museum Adventure pass in a 30-day period. Multiple reservations within that period will result in the library deleting your additional reservations at our discretion. Your card must be in good standing.
Each participating museum sets its own limits which are listed on the reservation page under “pass details.”
Yes, you may, as long as the pass is returned by the due date.
Go to the Welcome Desk to begin your Museum Adventure.
The pass must be returned in person at the Welcome Desk in its original folder. Under no circumstances should the pass be left in any of the book returns or on a counter.
Passes may not be renewed.
Yes. You may view your reservations and make changes online at [My Passes] on our Museum Adventure page. As a courtesy to others, please cancel any reservation you will not be using as soon as possible. If an unused reservation is not cancelled, you will be unable to reserve a pass that month.
