Cranford Online

The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are very pleased to provide passes to 11 outstanding museums to library patrons. Passes may be borrowed by adult Cranford Library card holders and by adult members of the Friends of the Cranford Public Library who belong to a library that participates in the MURAL borrowing system. Borrowers must be in good standing with the Cranford Public Library and, in the case of MURAL patrons, with their home library (i.e., no long overdue materials or outstanding fees or fines). A pass may be borrowed for two days. It may not be reserved or renewed. Passes are available on a first come, first served basis. To check on the availability of a pass, search the library catalog by museum name. Passes may be borrowed for only one institution at a time. Passes must be picked up at the library’s main desk and returned to the main desk. The overdue fine for a pass is $2.00 per day. The replacement fee for a lost pass is $25.00. The replacement fee for a lost case is $1.00.

About the Friends of the Cranford Public Library
The museum pass program is just one of the many ways in which the Friends of the Cranford Public Library support the library. Founded in 1979, the Friends underwrite the costs of most of the library’s adult programs, including the very popular international, classic and foreign film series. The Friends also sponsor the highly successful and critical children’s summer reading program. They purchase books and audio-visual items, as well as equipment and furniture, for public use, and they fund an annual scholarship in library studies. Membership in the Friends costs only $10.00 ($5.00 for senior citizens and students). Friends members receive the library’s bi-monthly newsletter, The Reader, in the mail.  Please consider joining the Friends and help them support and enhance all the wonderful materials and services offered by the library. Applications are available at the library’s main desk and online at the 
Friends of the Cranford Library Application Page.
