How many people are admitted to a museum per pass?

The membership conditions of each museum vary; to view these, click on the “?” next to the museum graphic in the “Reserve Pass By Museum” view.

What is the “Day of Use”?

“Day of Use” is the day you plan on visiting the museum.  Passes may be picked up beginning at 3 pm the day prior to the “Day of Use” and need to be returned by 1 pm the day after the “Day of Use” (e.g. if the “Day of Use” is Friday, the pass can be picked up beginning at 3 pm on Thursday through closing on Friday and returned by 1 pm on Saturday).

How do I cancel my reservation?

Reservations can be canceled any time before the “Day of Use.”  If the reservation is canceled on the “Day of Use”, it will be considered a “No Show.”  You can cancel online or by calling Indian Valley Public Library at 215-723-9109, ext. 2.

What is a “No show”?

If you do not pick up your pass on, or cancel your reservation prior to, the “Day of Use”, it will constitute a “No Show.”  Because demand for passes is extremely high, a “No Show” will result in:

  • 1st No Show – new reservations are blocked for 30 days

  • 2nd No Show – existing reservations are canceled and new reservations are blocked for 30 days

  • 3rd No Show – existing reservations are canceled and new reservations are blocked for 90 days

Where do I pick up my pass?

Passes can be picked up at the library’s front desk, no earlier than 3 pm prior to the “Day of Use”.

Do I need my library card to pick up the pass?

Yes, you will need to present the library card that you used when reserving the pass to pick it up.

Where do I return my pass?

Return passes to the library’s front desk by 1 pm after the “Day of Use” (e.g. if the “Day of Use” is Friday, return the pass by Saturday at 1 pm).  On Sundays, passes need to be returned at 1 pm when the library opens. If the library is closed, your pass will be due by 1 pm the next day the library is open.  Passes need to be returned on time so others may use them.  Thank you for your consideration of others who are waiting to use the pass.

What is the late fee or replacement fee?

The late fee for all passes is $20 per day.  If a pass is lost or damaged, the replacement fee is the cost of the pass.
