Reserving a Museum Pass: Museum passes may be borrowed by East Islip Public Library cardholders only, who are 18 years of age or older. The cardholder must be clear of fines over $5.00. Passes may be reserved in person at the Children’s Reference Desk for the current month and the following month only.

Limits: Each family may only have one museum pass either reserved or checked out at a time. Once you return a pass you can then make a new reservation.

Picking Up Passes: Pick up your reservation at the Children’s Desk. Be sure to bring your library card to check out your pass. The pass can only be picked up by the person that made the reservation or by their spouse. We suggest that you call ahead to be sure that the pass is in. The pass may be borrowed for three days (the day before, the day you plan to go and the day after) and must be returned before closing on the due date. The library closes at 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, at 6 p.m. on Friday and at 5 p.m. on Saturday. The library is open on Sunday from mid-September to mid-May only and closes at 5 p.m.

Returning the Passes: The pass and information packet must be returned in person at the Children’s Desk in its original envelope. Under no circumstances should the pass be left in any of the book drops. Passes may not be renewed.

Fines: A late fee of $20.00 per day is charged if the pass is not returned to the Children’s Desk by closing time of the due date. Fee for a lost pass is $50.00. Please return passes promptly so they can be enjoyed by other families.

Cancellations: As a courtesy to others, please cancel any reservation you will not be using as soon as possible. If an unused reservation is not cancelled, you will be unable to reserve any passes during the two-month period. Please call us at 631-581-9200 x6 to cancel.

NOTE: Museum hours and other information are subject to change and unexpected museum closings do occur. Please confirm that the museum is open prior to your visit. Take your East Islip library card with you. Some of the museums may ask to see it.

**Adults with library cards in good standing may reserve the membership card in advance and check it out on their library card. Reservations must be made in person at the Children's Desk. The library is not responsible for museum entrance fees in the event that a pass is lost or not returned on time for your use.
