Library seeks donations for RBCM museum passes

Libraries' waitlist for family passes to Royal BC Museum is long

  • May. 21, 2015 7:00 p.m.

Greater Victoria Public Library cardholders love to borrow passes to visit the Royal BC Museum, but the waitlist for the 20 family passes that the Royal BC Museum has already donated is long.

The library hopes to raise funds to add 30 extra family passes to the program for 2015/2016 so more families can experience the Royal BC Museum, one of Canada’s greatest cultural treasures.

Currently, the library lends 20 Royal BC Museum family passes for admission to two adults and up to three youth (children under six are free).  Passes can be taken out for a one-week loan with no renewals.

The program allows those who may not otherwise have the resources to access to world-class experiences and engaging exhibitions at the Royal BC Museum. 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 this coveted item and visit the museum and archives.

For more information or to donate, visit your local branch or gvpl.ca/RBCMpasscampaign.
