The Library does not offer a pass to the Liberty Science Center at this time. However, the Liberty Science Center offers a $3-per-person discount on admission for Princeton Public Library members who show their PPL library cards to the LSC’s Box Office, now through June 30, 2017. In addition, they offer a 10% discount to their annual membership pass to PPL members who show their library card.
Passes can be reserved online using your library card or by calling the Information Desk at 609.924.9529 x1220

One museum pass can be reserved per day per card. Each museum can be reserved one time per month, and up to five different museums can be reserved in a calendar month. Exceptions: The passes to Princeton University Library may be reserved up to eight times in the same month. A voucher to the American Museum of Natural History may be reserved one time per calendar year.
Reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance.
The membership conditions of each museum vary and is indicated in the description for each pass.
If you do not pick up your pass by the “Day of Use” it will constitute a “No Show”. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will also be considered a “No Show”. Because demand for passes is extremely high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.
Reservations can be canceled up to two days before the “Day of Use”. You can cancel online or by calling 609. 924.9529 x1220. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will be considered a “No Show”. Because demand for passes is extremely high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.
Passes can be picked up at the library no earlier than 3 p.m. prior to the “Day of Use” (i.e. if the “Day of Use” is Saturday, it can be picked up beginning at 3 p.m. on Friday through closing on Saturday). The Grounds for Sculpture pass is a digital pass that you will receive access to when you make the reservation.
Yes, you will need to present the library card that you used when reserving the pass to pick it up.
Return passes to the library Information Desk or exterior museum pass drop box by 11 a.m. after the Day of Use (i.e. if the “Day of Use” is Friday, return the pass by Saturday at 11 a.m.) On Sundays, passes need to be returned at 1 p.m. when the library opens. If the library is closed, your pass will be due by 11 a.m. the next day the library is open. Passes need to be returned on time so others may use them. Our museum partners will not accept a letter in lieu of a missing pass. Thank you for your consideration of others who are waiting to use the pass. Exception: Vouchers to the American Museum of Natural History and the Grounds for Sculpture tickets do not need to be returned.
The late fee for all passes is $25 a day. If a pass is lost or damaged, the replacement fee is $50. The library cannot replace lost or damaged vouchers for the American Museum of Natural History.
