Check Out a V.I.P. Pass at Rochester Public Library!

The Monroe County Library System is proud to announce the V.I.P pass program, a partnership with the Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester Museum & Science Center, Genesee Country Village & Museum, Geva Theatre Center and George Eastman House, which allows libraries to circulate discount passes for each of these institutions.

V.I.P stands for “Very Important Places” marking the relevance of libraries, theaters and museums to the life of the community. Working together, our organizations are able to provide multiple opportunities for education, inspiration and enrichment to the residents of Monroe County.

Horizons can be expanded by seeing a play at Geva, or by star gazing at the Strasenburgh Planetarium. An interest in technology or a love of art can be discovered enjoying the exhibits at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, or exploring the Memorial Art Gallery. Visiting the George Eastman House can give you a glimpse of “lifestyles of the rich and famous-- Rochester edition” and show how Eastman’s inventions changed the world by making photography accessible to all. Travel back in time and experience, hands on, life in the 19th century at the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

Here’s how it works:
• Visit your participating local library and check out a V.I.P. pass—just like a book!
• Take the V.I.P. pass to the Museum/Theatre Pass partner and enjoy special admission prices.
• After you have enjoyed a great day, return the V.I.P. pass to the library, so another person can check it out.
Great discounts to great places, just by using your library card!
