Visit a Museum

The Friends of the Cranbury Public Library have generously provided FREE passes for CPL members to three of the area’s most popular museums:

Check out a pass to one of the museums with your library card, just like a book. Enjoy your visit with family and friends and then return the pass to the Library. Complete details of the Museum Pass program are listed below:

General Information

Cranbury Public Library adult cardholders in good standing are eligible for passes. Passes may be reserved and checked out any time during regular library hours. Reservations can be made one day prior — at the soonest — or on the day of, being checked out. Passes must be picked up one (1) hour prior to closing time. Passes are loaned for a three (3) day period. Passes must be returned in person to the circulation desk. Do not use the book drop to return passes!

A fine of $2.50 per day will be charged for overdue passes. Maximum fine is equal to the card’s replacement value. Only one museum pass per household may be checked out.

It is the borrower’s sole responsibility to view the schedule on the museum website, for any museum pass they reserve and check out — in order to verify that the museum will be open when they arrive there (as regular schedules are always subject to change).
