What is a “No show”?

If you do not pick up your pass by the “Day of Use” it will constitute a “No Show”. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will also be considered a “No Show”.  Because demand for passes is high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.

Can I cancel my reservations?

Reservations can be canceled up to two days before the “Day of Use”.   You can cancel by calling 715.479.8070. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will be considered a “No Show”.  Because demand for passes is high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.

Do I need my library card to pick up the pass?

Yes, you will need to present the library card that you used when reserving the pass to pick it up.

Where do I return my pass?

Return passes to the library Information Desk or the book drop by 11 a.m. after the Day of Use (i.e. if the “Day of Use” is Friday, return the pass by Saturday at 11 a.m.)  If the library is closed, your pass will be due by 11 a.m. the next day the library is open. Passes need to be returned on time so others may use them.  Thank you for your consideration of others who are waiting to use the pass.

What is the late fee or replacement fee?

The late fee for all passes is $10 a day. If a pass is lost or damaged, the replacement fee is $50.
