Museum and Garden Passes

 

The Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library now offers museum passes to its cardholders!
These passes admit a group to explore one of the many museums around South Jersey!


Due to the global pandemic, some passes are temporarily unavailable or available with limited service or access.
In order to check on the availability of the passes and to request an agreement application, please send an email message to circulation@hegganlibrary.org.
Please note that the passes are available first come, first serve. Since it is necessary for the library staff to quarantine the passes for 72 hours after they are returned, as we are following national quarantine guidelines, availability of the passes may be limited.

Museum and Garden Pass Policy
Only adult Heggan cardholders in good standing (a current card with less than $10 in fines) may check out one pass at a time. Patrons must use their own library card when checking out a pass. The library staff reserves the right to limit the number of times that cardholders may borrow passes due to demand and availability. Passes can be checked out for three days at a time and may not be renewed. The late fee will be $10 per day, up to $70. On the seventh day, the cardholder will be billed for the full cost of the pass, plus the $70 fine. Passes may not be placed on hold or held for patrons. They are available first come, first served. Passes must be returned to staff at the circulation desk of the Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library and may not be placed in the book return. Any passes placed in the book return will be considered one day late and a $10 fee will be charged to the patron’s account. Passes returned to any library other than the Margaret E. Heggan Library will also be considered late and a $10 fee will be charged to the patron’s account. The pass must be returned in the case that was supplied when the pass was checked out along with the information inside the case about the location. Cardholders will be charged the full cost of the pass if the pass is lost, damaged, or destroyed. Cardholders must sign an agreement before checking out a pass. Cardholders who lose, damage, or destroy a pass, or violate the terms of agreement in any other manner, may be barred from borrowing passes in the future.
