Museum Passes

In an effort to slow the transmission of the Covid-19 virus a number of museums are closing to the public. We are monitoring the situation as best we can and suspending passes as we are notified.  Please check the individual museum’s web-site for up to date information. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

All passes are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations may be made in person at the Library, by phone  or online. Anyone with a valid Old Colony Library Network card can reserve and borrow museum passes.  Reservations are limited to 2 passes per day, or 6 passes in any 3 month period, except for the Mass. Parks Pass, which can be borrowed 3 times over 3 months.  Passes can be reserved up to 3 months in advance.

If you cannot use a pass you reserved, please cancel the reservation so that others might use it. Cancel in person at the Library, by phone  or online.

Passes may be picked up the day before use; Monday passes may be picked up on the preceding Saturday. Please bring your library card when picking up passes.

Some passes must be returned before the Library opens on the day following use (Sundays excluded).  A late fee of $5 per day will be assessed for passes returned late. Paper passes do not need to be returned.

Passes are sponsored by the Friends of the Kingston Public Library, except the Wheelock Family Theatre pass, which is courtesy of the Theatre and the Boston Parents Paper.

Our current museum passes are listed here.
