Durham Museum launches Library Pass Program

Beginning February 1, 2021, local library members will be able to check out a pass for their family to visit The Durham Museum.  The Durham’s new Library Pass Program will function like a family membership, with each pass granting admission for two adults and dependent children or grandchildren from the same household.  However, users will not receive other museum discounts.

The Library Pass Program was created to provide more accessibility to regional families that may not otherwise be able to visit the museum or afford a membership.  Library patrons can also use the pass to “try before you buy” option. Library members should contact their specific library and/or branch for check-out rules and replacement fee information.

Five area libraries are set to participate in the program, including all 12 Omaha Public Library branches.

Omaha Public Library Branches:
A.V. Sorensen Branch
Benson Branch
Bess Johnson Elkhorn Branch
Charles B. Washington Branch
Florence Branch
Millard Branch

“We are thrilled to launch this program to library cardholders!  Museums and public libraries have so much in common,” said Christi Janssen, Durham Museum Executive Director.  “We both provide a great resource to our community and seek to connect people to new ideas, information and experiences.  We look forward to welcoming guests of the program and hope it will allow people to experience all that The Durham has to offer.”
