Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is MuseumPass?
MuseumPass is a popular program sponsored jointly by the Friends of the Fanwood Memorial and Scotch Plains Public Libraries that lets card holders and Friends of both Libraries visit area museums for free or at a minimal cost!

Who may borrow museum passes?
Scotch Plains and Fanwood Library adult cardholders, and members of the Friends of either Library who have a MURAL or a Courtesy Card. Cardholders must be in good standing. MURAL and Courtesy cardholders who are not members of the Friends are not eligible.

Are there other rules about borrowing the passes?
Yes, there are several. Only one museum pass can be checked out per household. Once a museum pass has been checked out for a particular museum the household members must wait three months before taking out that same pass. These rules help everybody get a chance to visit the museums. Please read the additional rules posted further down the page.

How long may I keep a pass?
Three (3) days.

Who may use the pass with me?
Every museum has different rules about its pass. Please check the guidelines for each specific pass.

How may I pick up and return a museum pass?
Museum passes are available on a first-come/first-served basis. You cannot reserve a pass.
Passes may be checked out and returned only at the Scotch Plains Public Library. Passes MUST BE RETURNED IN PERSON at the circulation desk, NOT in the book drop!

What will it cost me?
Absolutely nothing, unless you are purchasing discounted tickets. However, late and lost fees apply.

What if I don't return a pass on time?
Failure to return the pass will result in a fine of $10.00 per day (with a maximum fine of $200.00). Failure to return the pass container will result in a fine of $5.00. Patrons will be charged $25 for a new museum pass in the event it is lost, unless otherwise specified in museum descriptions above.

Which museum passes are available?
Please see the list at the top of the page - and of course we welcome your suggestions!

Do all the passes work the same way?
Each museum has different guidelines for its pass. Please respect the guidelines. It is up to the patron to check the museum hours and closures due to special events.

Who pays for the museum pass?
MuseumPass is made possible by the generous joint support of the Friends of the Fanwood Memorial Library and the Scotch Plains Public Library.

Who are the Friends of the Library?
Both Libraries' Friends groups are contributors and volunteers who are committed to supporting the health and well being of their local libraries. They work to foster interest in the libraries, make the public aware of the libraries' services and needs, and help the libraries provide special programs for individuals or groups in the community. The Friends also support the libraries with funds for the purchase of equipment, programs, and materials.

How do I join the Friends?
If you are interested in becoming a Friend, membership forms are available at the front desk of each library.
