Library Museum Pass

SCOTCH PLAINS, FANWOOD - The Fanwood Memorial Library and the Scotch Plains Public Library are proud to announce the two very exciting additions to their very popular joint initiative MUSEUM PASS. Co-sponsored by the Friends groups of both libraries, MUSEUM PASS lets cardholders and Friends of both libraries visit area museums for free or at a greatly reduced cost. 

New passes have been secured, and are now available, for the amazing family destinations of Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ and Imagine That!!!, a children’s playspace and museum in Florham Park, NJ. These two museums join a long list of other museums available through the program. All the details can be found online at, including the participating museums, the rules for borrowing and details on some of the museums’ reciprocal partnerships which extend the value of the passes.
