Late Opening

The Library will open at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23, due to renovation work. We will close at our regular time of 9 p.m. 

Museum Adventure Pass

Use your library card to receive free admission or a special discount at select suburban cultural destinations.

Here’s how you can check out a Museum Adventure Pass at the Library:

  1. Click here to check out the list of participating museums.

    Find out what discoveries await you, get directions to the museum, and review each museum’s pass entry offer, including any restrictions that may apply.

  2. Come in to the Library to pick up your pass.
    Passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis during the hours that we are open. Passes cannot be reserved or checked out online or on the phone. Some Museum Adventure Passes (for example, passes for Brookfield Zoo) are very popular, and there are multiple requests at the same time for the same pass. In this case, Library staff will conduct a drawing to resolve which person will receive the pass. 

  3. One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per family. Passes may only be checked out by a Carol Stream adult resident card holder.

  4. The loan period is seven days. The pass will expire after the date printed on the pass. Only one pass per account may be checked out during the seven day loan period.

  5. Admission offers vary per museum.
    For some, two or four people may be admitted free per pass, or by carload. If museum admission is already free, another special discount will be offered.

  6. Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable.
    Your name will be printed on the pass and you will be asked to show identification at the museum. You should be prepared to show both your library card and an ID. The museum will collect the pass when you visit.
