Library Introduces “Discovery Passes” to Front Range Attractions
Free passes provide single day admittance to popular museums and more
The Longmont Public Library’s book collection numbers in the tens of thousands, but knowledge is not found in books alone. To be truly well-rounded, a person must also have experiences. To promote learning experiences, the Friends of the Longmont Library has partnered with many local museums and attractions to offer free daily passes to patrons through the Library’s website. These new “Discovery Passes” are a ticket to history, art, science, culture, and nature all along the Front Range, accessible with just a library card. The following destinations are currently participating, and the Library will be adding more attractions in coming months:
- The Butterfly Pavilion
- The Clyfford Still Museum
- The Denver Firefighters Museum
- The Denver Museum of Nature and Science
- The Golden History Museum and Park
- The Longmont Museum
- The Molly Brown House Museum
- The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
- WOW! Children’s Museum
Reserving a Discovery Pass is fast and easy. Just visit the Library’s website, locate the Discovery Passes page, decide which attraction to visit, and then click the “Reserve Your Discovery Pass” button to reserve the desired pass. Because destinations have varying operating days and hours, patrons are encouraged to review the hours and availability of the attraction before reserving a pass. Any patron with a Longmont Library Adult Resident library card can reserve a pass at no cost. Pass holders do not have to come to the Library to collect their pass, but a printed pass must be shown at the museum/venue entrance. Library staff are happy to print passes for patrons without access to a printer at home. Passes may be reserved up to 30 days in advance. One pass for each museum may be reserved once per calendar year (365 days from date of last reservation). Changes or cancellations may be made up to 24 hours in advance by calling the Library Reference Desk at 303-651-8472.
Discovery Passes offer Longmont Public Library patrons the chance to get out and learn in new environments. Knowledge may be power, but there’s no reason it can’t also be fun. So go discover what’s out there!
