The Lafayette Public Library is offering a newly expanded museum pass program that provides free family admission to five museums and historic sites in Lafayette Parish.

The Library says that due to the success of the library’s partnership with the Hilliard University Art Museum, the museum pass program will now include the following five participating museums:

The free family admission pass is currently available for anyone with a valid Lafayette Public Library card to check out from any library location. The pass is good for a one-time family admission and must be used within seven days of being checked out.

Only one pass may be borrowed at a time and the library card holder must be in good standing with the library.

“The Lafayette Public Library is constantly looking for new ways to provide educational opportunities to our patrons,” states Keith Guidry, Community Relations Coordinator.  “This new partnership with five of the finest museums in Lafayette Parish expands the quality of our services as well as access to the arts. It removes all barriers of cost. This program benefits everyone involved but most importantly the people of Lafayette Parish.”

The library museum passes will be available beginning Thursday, November 15, 2018, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. You may call the Lafayette Public Library to reserve a pass or visit any library location to check one out at the circulation desk.

Patrons will not be able to place an online hold on a museum pass. For more information about the library museum pass, visit
