The Friends of the Wilsonville Library recently 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.
