CHECK OUT A FREE PASS TO THE NEW CHILDREN'S MUSEUM AT THE COUNTY LIBRARY
December 12, 2012
San Diego County Library and The New Children's Museum are partnering to provide free access to the New Children's Museum. This innovative partnership allows families to check out a circulating membership card for the museum just as they would a book. For the 10-day period in which the family holds the card, they receive all the benefits of membership including free admission to the museum, discounts at the cafe, on classes, camps, and parking.
The New Children's Museum is a dynamic new model of a museum that celebrates children and the arts. A non-profit institution funded by admissions, memberships, and community support, the Museum empowers children to think, play and create through participatory exhibitions, engaging art-making activities, captivating artistic performances, and in-depth educational opportunities. The passes are good for free admission for two adults and however many children are in the household. To reserve a pass, go to www.sdcl.org and search 'museum pass.'

"Libraries and museums are natural partners. This program leverages our resources for the benefit of families across the County," said Library Director José Aponte.
This program is supported in large part by grants from The Rancho Santa Fe Women's Fund and Qualcomm, as well as several other local foundations and government sources. For more information, visit www.sdcl.org or visit your local library.
