The Fairfield Public Library is currently offering a limited number of passes. Please note that most reopened museums have temporarily changed their opening days and times. Please remember to check each museum’s website for information on hours, safety measures and ticketing information before planning your visit.
We are continually adding more passes as more museums reopen and our passes get renewed. Please check back for updates.
To borrow a museum pass:
- You must be an adult and have a current, adult Fairfield Public Library Card.
- Loan period is 3 days. Due to demand, overdue fines are $10.00 per day; replacement cost for a lost pass varies from $50.00 to $250.00. Passes cannot be renewed.
- Two passes per family may be checked out at a time.
- Pass must be returned to the library from which it was borrowed. Pass must be returned inside the building and handed to a staff member, not inside a book or video drop. Passes returned in the drop are considered late and will be assessed a $10 late charge. Fines on museum passes will not be forgiven or excused in 2021.
