Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable. The institution will collect the pass when you visit. Special exhibits may not be covered, and other exclusions may apply.
Each library has access to five passes per week, per participating cultural partner. Passes will be available for checkout by library patrons on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please note that on account the pass is good for seven days from the day of checkout, unless a cultural partner is closed or has otherwise specified a "blackout day" when a pass may not be used. Only one MAP pass is available per library card.
