Demand High for Museum Passes

I truly believe that one of the best services the public library offers is lending museum passes. My library offers sixteen passes, some funded by the Friends of the Library and many offered freely by the museums and state parks. In the summer particularly, the passes fly off the shelf. Demand is so high, that we have acquired multiple passes for certain locations and also had to devise a reserve systemand related policy. Our passes only circulate for two days. Patrons can reserve a pass for two days on a first-come, first served-basis. Passes cannot be reserved for more than two days in sequence by the same patron.
