Museum Adventure PassMuseum Adventure Passes are now available. For more details, visit the website http://www.museumadventure.org.

Here’s how you can Check out a Museum Adventure Pass at your Library:

Visit your home library to find out current pass availability. Library staff will be able to check on what is available, and also check out the passes.

Libraries have a limited number of passes for each participating organization, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Passes cannot be reserved or checked out online or on the phone.

One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per person, per loan period. The loan period is SEVEN DAYS and will expire after the date printed on the pass.

Admission offers vary per museum. For some, two or four people may be admitted free per pass, or by carload. If admission is free, another special discount will be offered.

Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable. Your name will be printed on the pass, and you may be asked to show identification at the museum. The museum will collect the pass when you visit.

Check the list of participating museums for details on each cultural destination. Find out what discoveries await you, get directions to the museum, and review each museum’s pass entry offer, including any restrictions that may apply.

Notary Public

Free notary public service is provided by the Library for most documents, with the exception of real estate documents, which are excluded.  The Library also cannot notarize government I-9 forms, nor can we provide an Apostille. An Apostille is a form that certifies the authenticity of a document that is issued in one country to be used and considered valid in another.  These can be obtained through the Secretary of State’s office.

Several staff members are licensed to notarize signatures on documents. While in general notaries are available during regular business hours, we strongly recommend calling before coming in to make sure a notary is available.

For more information on our notary services, please see Section Three of our Library Policies.
