Museum Pass Online Reservations

Customers love that we offer museum passes to the American Museum of Natural History, Hudson Highlands Nature Museum, Intrepid Sea and Space Museum, Museum of the City of New York and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.  These family passes save our customers thousands of dollars a year.

Reserving the passes was not always so easy.  Reserving a pass by telephone could be troublesome for customers and the library alike.   Beginning tomorrow, August 3rd, the library will introduce a new system to reserve passes online.

Reservations 101

Technology allows us to place holds through our online catalogue or with a librarian.  New City members place thousands of requests each month.  The title you select is placed in a queue in the order it was received.  You might be 27th when you check the list, but just a few hours later you are notified that the item is here at the library.  How could that be?  The queue includes all requests throughout the RCLS system.  However, location, location, location is key.  New City members receive priority on our material.  When a requested New City owned item is checked in, the first New City member in the queue gets it. If all our copies are out, another library may be able to supply the title.  Also if we don't own the item, your request is sent to another library that does own it.  Our transit delivery system is an integral part of 'reserve fulfillment.'  Our library receives over 3000 items a month from throughout the system!

The Coolest Place to Stay Cool

Our airconditioning is working just fine (knock on wood).    Please be safe in this hot weather and remember to drink plenty of water.  If you become thirsty you have waited too long.   Experts advise to slow down and avoid strenuous exercise.  What better place to slow down that at your library.  The most strenuous exercise may be taking a book down off the shelf.  

So please consider visiting the coolest place around to stay cool during this hot weather.  We hope to see you soon.
