Portland Art Museum pass available at the library

Portland Art Museum

Portland Art Museum pass - reserve now!

The Friends of the Wilsonville Library┬árecently purchased a family membership pass to the Portland Art Museum for use by library patrons as the most recent addition to the Library’s collection of “Cultural Passes.” The Portland Art Museum Cultural Pass allows two adults free admission to the Portland Art Museum. Children under the age of 17 receive free admission, as a general museum policy.

Cultural Passes provide library patrons free admission to local attractions, ranging from the Portland Children’s Museum to the Portland Japanese Garden, the Pittock Mansion, and more. The Friends have purchased all of the Cultural Passes for the Library with the revenue from their Twice Sold Tales Bookstore inside the Library lobby.

“Much like the addition of e-books, downloadable audiobooks, and other online services, providing the Cultural Passes reflects the evolving services of the Wilsonville Public Library,” said Library Director Pat Duke. “These passes are another aspect of the Library’s traditional role and mission of encouraging access to information and culture. We’re fortunate to be able to provide Wilsonville citizens with free access to cultural institutions like the Portland Art Museum.”

Cultural Passes can be reserved for a 24-hour period by citizens with Clackamas County library cards in good standing. Reservations may be made up to a month in advance by calling the Library or visiting the Circulation Desk.

For more information, contact the Library at 503-682-2744, or visit the Library website: www.wilsonvillelibrary.org.

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?

Yes, Valentine’s Day is ten days away, but if you want to have any library materials on hand for the holiday, now is the time to put them on hold.

What library materials could you possibly want for Valentine’s Day? How about:

  • Videos (romantic movies, massage instruction, live music concerts)
  • Music (classical music, slow jazz, Parisian cafe music, Barry White)
  • Books (love poetry, romance novels, gourmet cookbooks, wine guides)
  • Audiobooks (have a story read to you! Available on tape, CD, or MP3)
  • Cultural Pass (get free entry for 2 adults to a Portland area attraction – perhaps a stroll through the Japanese Garden, or a visit to the Portland Art Museum?)

Find out more by visiting the Library website at www.wilsonvillelibrary.org, or calling us at 503-682-2744. Have a great Valentine’s Day!

Want a free pass to the Pittock Mansion?

Or how about the Portland Children’s Museum, the Portland Japanese Garden, the Portland Classical Chinese Garden, or the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden?

You can go to these local sites for free by reserving a Cultural Pass with your library card!

All you need to do is visit or call the library (503-682-2744) to reserve a Cultural Pass for the location you want to visit. Name your preferred date, and if the pass is available (and your account is in good standing), you can have a virtual family membership for the day for that location.

You can pick the pass up the night before your trip (one hour before the library closes). Just make sure to return the pass one hour before the library closes, so the next person has the same chance to pick up the pass early.
