Summer is the perfect time to catch up on those books to read lists. Along with that, again this summer, the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative is reinstating its Discovery Pass program. With an active Hillsborough County Library Card, residents can receive free tickets to participating museums in the Tampa Bay area.

Obtaining museum tickets is an easy and straightforward process that can be done from home. On the home screen of his website, he gives step-by-step instructions on how to book tickets.

This program offers 13 museums, some for children and some for adults so that everyone can participate. The Glazer Children’s Museum, Hillsborough County Conservation Parks, Tampa Theater and Florida Museum of Photographic Arts are just a few of the museums on offer this summer.

Each museum has a number of tickets available for each day, so it is important to monitor availability. The number of people admitted with each pass will also vary by museum, and details are listed for each pass.

After booking the tickets, the library will send the tickets directly by e-mail and the tickets can be presented to the museum in digital or printed form. If the email is lost, tickets can be resent, but cannot be renewed for new or different passes. For each library card, a discovery pass is assigned, which can only be used once per 12-month period.

The age limit for a library card is 13, and signing up for a library card is a simple, free process that can be done at the nearest library or online. A library card offers many benefits, such as the ability to borrow books from select college libraries, borrow e-books for Kindles, free printing and internet, and access to movies. and broadcasts.

The Discovery Pass program was founded in 2014 to encourage adults and children to read throughout the summer to expand their minds. The library offers a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, films, and TV shows for children and adults.
