Museum Passes & Library of Things
Thanks to the Friends of the Babylon Public Library, Babylon patrons can now reserve museum passes and outdoor games. These passes provide free admission to some of the areas most popular museums. All you need is an adult library card in good standing. Patrons must abide by the conditions that each of the museums has set forth. Patrons are limited to using one pass per destination per month.
