Who may take out a Museum Pass?
Museum Passes may be reserved up to 30 days in advance by residents in the Oceanside School District who are 18 years or older, whose Oceanside Library card is in good standing, with no outstanding fines, and is not expired. Each Museum Pass may only be borrowed by a family once in 30 days and only 1 pass per household at a time.

What type of passes does the Library offer?
Print on Demand:
 Passes can be printed from home or at the library. Request your pass for the day you plan to visit the museum. Print the pass instantly at the time of reservation. The pass is only valid for the date of visit listed on the confirmation page and must be presented to the museum in printed format. If you are unable to print your pass at the time of reservation, come to the library during our business hours and we’ll print it for you. There is no need to return a POD pass to the library.

Pick Up / Return at Library
: Passes are picked up at the Welcome Desk on the 1st floor of the library and must be picked up by the cardholder who made the reservation. These passes have a 3 Day loan period and MUST be returned to the library during Borrowing & Browsing Hours. Please DO NOT put Museum Passes in the Book Drop at this time.  Please check the due date of the pass carefully.

Can I use the passes for special exhibits and member only events?
Many museums do not accept library passes for special exhibits/events. Contact the museum to verify if the pass will be honored for special programs.

How do I cancel a reservation?
You may cancel a reservation from home using the "My Passes" button. Enter your library barcode and click "cancel" next to the pass. If you wish to cancel a reservation less than 24 hours before your reservation date, please contact the Welcome Desk at 516-766-2360 x300 or x301.
