Museum Passes Policy

The Billerica Public Library offers several different passes to museums and attractions in New England. The passes are available for MVLC cardholders in good standing with the library. The passes are provided to the library through the generous sponsorship of the Family Friends of the Library and local sponsoring businesses and organizations.

The library has one pass per museum per day. Passes admit more than one person to the museum or attraction for free or at a discounted rate. Eligible users may reserve one pass per day and only one pass per week. NOTE: Family Friends of the Billerica Public Library members may reserve two passes per week. Library staff reserves the right to monitor museum pass usage to ensure fairness and access to the greatest number of patrons.

Passes may be reserved up to 60 days in advance. The library cannot guarantee that a specific pass will be available on a particular day. All reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. The various museums or attractions have electronic passes, coupon passes that do not have to be returned, or plastic passes that must be returned to the library by the morning after the pass is used. Passes can be dropped in the book drop when the library is not open.

Passes may be picked up, in most cases, up to four days in advance. Some passes, which are earmarked for multiple days (for example, Mon-Wed-Fri or Tues-Thurs), can only be picked up the day before or the morning of the pass use. For details on a specific pass, check the Billerica Public Library website or telephone the library at 978-671-0949 (press 3).

Passes may be reserved in three ways:

  1. Visit the circulation desk on the library’s main floor and talk with a staff member at the desk.
  2. Visit the library’s website and reserve the pass over the Internet (You will need your library card number and your PIN number to log in. Your PIN number is the last four digits of the telephone number that you registered when you got your library card.). When reserving a pass for yourself, be sure that you follow all directions and reserve the correct available date.
  3. Telephone the library – 978-671-0949 (press 3) – and ask the staff member who answers to reserve a pass for you. 

Loan periods are set by the Library Director. Please see our Circulation Policy for more details.
