Museum Passes

Museum Pass Fundraiser
The Caldwell Public Library Foundation is asking for your support to bring back Museum Passes for Caldwell Library cardholders.
Our first goal was reached! We will be purchasing the following ASAP:
  • The Intrepid
  • Montclair Art Mueseum
  • Morris Museum
  •      Storm King Art Center
  • Imagine That! in Florham Park
  • Children's Museum of Manhattan
The Foundation was unable to hold their annual fundraiser in 2020 or 2021 due to the pandemic, but has still been a generous supporter of the library during this time.
Any surplus funds raised will either go towards additional passes, additional museums, or renewal fees so that this program may continue.

General Information

  • Caldwell Library cardholders ages 18 and above with unexpired cards in good standing (no fines or fees) are welcome to borrow a Museum Pass.

  • There is no fee to borrow the Pass unless it is returned late, damaged or lost.

  • Borrowers must sign our Museum Pass Policy before checking out a pass for the first time.


How long may I keep the Pass?

  • Passes may be borrowed for the following time frames: Pick up any time on Friday & return by 4:30 p.m. the following Monday; OR pick up any time on Tuesday & return by 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.


How do I reserve a Pass?

  • A Pass may be reserved either in person or by phone. Passes may be available on walk-in basis.

  • Reservations may be made up to 60 days in advance.

  • Passes may be picked up only by reserving cardholder, who must show their valid library card.

  • A reservation is forfeited if the pass is not picked up on the reserved day by closing time.


How do I Pick Up and Return the Pass?

  • Passes must be picked up and returned at the Front Desk. They may not be returned in the book drop.


What if I return the Pass late or lose it?

  • There will be a $10 late fee for each day the Pass is overdue. The maximum fine is the cost of the membership card for that museum ($100 Morris Museum; $500 Intrepid; $165 Montclair Art Museum; $500 Guggenheim)

  • If the Pass is damaged, the patron will be charged the museum’s fee for a replacement card.
