We now offer online pass reservations! A Library card with a Grafton zip code, and a valid email address, are required to reserve online.
Grafton residents may browse our museum passes and make a reservation from home. A valid Library card is required. As you view each pass, you will see details on that pass, including the cost of admission, the museum’s hours and phone number. Clicking on the name of the museum brings you to the museum’s website for even more information.
While non-residents cannot make advance reservations, same-day passes may be available for our out-of-town members. The Library is participating in some pass sharing with other Blackstone Valley libraries; check out the complete list of offerings. Additionally, many museums offer a free Friday in the summer; visit the Highland Street Foundation for details.
Select the museum and for the date that you would like to use the pass. You will need your Library card to complete your reservation. An email address is required for confirmation and reminder purposes. Then, come into the Library to pick up the pass and enjoy your visit! Please note that Library Hours are Mon-Thu 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and Fri/Sat 10:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.; if you make a reservation on a Sunday to go to a museum that same day, no one is available to loan the pass to you, as the Library is not open.
If your plans change and you are unable to keep your reservation, please call the Library at 508-839-4649 x1101 to cancel, so we can make the pass available to someone else.
Thanks to the Friends of the Library for providing the passes and the reservation software. In 2013, the Friends spent $3,645 for 15 museum memberships!
