First, I have to apologize. This post is coming to you a day late.
I went to the library yesterday (June 1st) at 10:30, expecting a story time for my girls and ended up finding out that it’s the first day of the FREE Library Adventure Museum Pass (aka LAMP).
Here are your Library Adventure Museum Pass Tips.
What is LAMP?
On June 1st and July 1st, each Palm Beach County Library offers passes to museums within the county. The participating organizations are donating all of the free admissions. In cases where the entrance is free, additional benefits are offered to LAMP holders.
Tip: These passes are extremely limited, remember FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Often the first people have multiple children and will take several passes before you even get to the front.
Why is LAMP awesome?
You can get free admission to some of the greatest libraries in the county, including the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. You can save anywhere up to $50 for local museums. You will also find out about several museums in the area that you never even thought about.
Where can you get your LAMP?
At any of the local county libraries.
Tip: If you don’t have the option at your local library, you may have the option at another. Remember, it’s FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Each library has it’s own stash of passes.
When can you get your LAMP?
On June 1st and July 1st, each library is stocked with a LIMITED amount of tickets. You have to arrive when the library opens (or before) so that you can ensure you get your first choice of library.
How do you get your LAMP?
You receive one free LAMP per child’s library account. You MUST have a card present to receive your LAMP.
Tip: ALL children count, including those who aren’t readers. Make sure that the babies have an active library card prior to June or July 1st. You can receive up to four (4) free passes for the library card.
What we received?
Four (4) free admissions to the Norton Museum of Art and four (4) free admissions to the Boca Raton Museum of Art, which means that the entire family can get in free to both of these museums this summer. Check off two for the bucket list!
We only got tickets based on Bee and the newest library card owner, Butterfly. Bunny has not used his access to LAMP. We could also try another library tomorrow to see if there are better selections elsewhere.
Tip: Children need not be present. Parents can utilize their kids’ cards to obtain a LAMP.
If you hit up your museum on June 2nd, don’t fret. Mark your calendars for July 1st and get the museum you desire!
UPDATE: You can get a free LAMP per day, per location until gone. So, go back every day and get your LAMP and access to some awesome county museums.
