Picking Up and Returning Passes:

  • Passes may be picked up after 4:00pm and must be returned by 11:00am* on the due date (*1:00pm on Sundays). Patron must present the library card under whose name the pass was reserved.
  • Pick up and return of passes should be done in person at the Circulation Desk. However, passes can be returned in the drive thru book drop. Pass cannot be returned to the book drop at the community center.

No Shows and Canceling Reservations:

  • If you do not pick up your pass by the “Day of Use” it will constitute a “No Show”. If the reservation is canceled the day before or on the “Day of Use” it will also be considered a “No Show”. Because demand for passes is high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.
  • Reservations can be canceled up to two (2) days before “the Day of Use”. You can cancel online or by calling the Circulation desk 732-521-5000.
  • Reservations cannot be canceled via email.

Late, Lost, or Unreturned Passes:

  • There will be a $5.00 late fee each day the pass is past due. Maximum fine will be equal to the pass replacement cost.
  • Patron is responsible for the full replacement cost of the pass if it is lost.

For more information, call the Library.
