Museums and Libraries ... perfect together

From Stephen Abrams....

Beginning July 3, Toronto Public Library users can borrow a Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Pass, in the same way they can borrow a book or CD from the collection. The pass provides full admission to a family of up to two adults and five children to the Art Gallery of Ontario and at least four other Toronto cultural institutions.... I hear more museums and art galleries are going to be added too.

I love it! What a clever idea for the library and the museum. I just love this collaboration, and it just proves the point, that it's not just about books (although some of us *still* love our books.

Multnomah County Library in Portland, OR offers a pass to the Portland Children's Museum. Right now there are 328 holds. There's a 3-day check-out, not the normal 3 weeks.

The libraries of the Twin Cities metro area (MN)offer a Muesum Adventure Pass that can be checked out for 7 days for free admission for up to 4 people at 20+ museums. The program is sponsored by Macy's and the museums donate the admission. See

I noticed your interest in Libraries and museums (from your blog). I have added this information in my today's blog post: "Will tomorrow's libraries become more like museums of today -- A question for the coming decade"

Will appreciate your comments.
