Museum Passes


Patrons are able to check out museum passes again! Since many museums are still closed due to COVID-19, be sure to contact the museum for their hours, required advance reservations and any restrictions in place. To reserve a pass, call (845-878-6121, ext. 10 )  or email the library at with your request. Your request should include the pass you would like, the day you would like to pick it up, your contact information and MHLS library card number (must be in good standing). Passes may be reserved up to 1 month in advance and must be picked up on the agreed date or the reservation is forfeited. Two passes per family at a time, not including AMNH & FDR vouchers. The $25 deposit (cash or check) should be put in an envelope for us to hold until the pass is returned on time. Each patron will receive two copies of the agreement to sign, one for us and one to keep.
