No-Shows & Last Minute Cancellations: If any museum pass has been reserved and cancelled within 2 days of the reservation or is not picked up, the patron will be credited with a no-show and you will not be permitted to make future museum pass reservations for 30 days. This is to prevent others from blocking dates they do not use. A 48-hour notice of cancellation is required to avoid being considered a no-show.

Return/Late Fees: A Pick Up/Return pass must be returned to the Circulation Desk BEFORE 11 AM or placed in the Book Drop Box BEFORE 9 AM the day after your visit, to avoid a $10 per day late fee. Be advised that unpaid fines will result in your museum pass privileges being suspended.

Library Material Fines: Free museum passes are available to Harborfields Public Library District residents who hold an adult Harborfields Public Library Card in good standing. If the Library cardholder has excessive Library material fines ($50 or more), they will not be permitted to reserve a pass until the fine has been paid. If excessive fines are accrued after a museum pass has been reserved, the patron will not be permitted to check out a pass until the fine has been paid. Any user who loses a pass will be charged a $50 replacement cost.

Monthly Limit: A maximum of nineteen (19) passes per family/address, per calendar month, may be borrowed, not to exceed more than one per day. Repeat visits to the same museum within the month are not permitted. To ensure fair distribution of passes, only one pass may be checked out to a Harborfields patron/family/address at any given time.

Library Responsibility Waiver: The Library is not responsible for museum entrance fees in the event that a Pick Up/Return Pass is lost or not returned on time for your use, for reservations made when the Library is scheduled to be CLOSED, or for any emergency closing.
