Greater Victoria Library seeks donations to provide access to museum

The library hopes to raise funds to add 30 extra family passes to the program so more families can experience the Royal B.C. Museum.

Greater Victoria Public Library cardholders like to borrow passes to visit the Royal B.C. Museum, but the waitlist for the 20 family passes that the museum has donated is long.

The library hopes to raise funds to add 30 extra family passes to the program so more families can experience the Royal B.C. Museum.

The library lends 20 museum family passes for admission to two adults and up to three youth. Family passes can be taken out for a one-week loan with no renewals.

Similar GVPL pass programs are available for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Robert Bateman Centre and Saanich Recreation.

A donation of $126 allows GVPL to purchase a one-year family pass meaning that 50 more families per year can borrow the item and visit the museum and archives.

For more information or to donate, visit a local branch or go online to gvpl.ca/RBCMpasscampaign.
