Library books can transport you and your imagination into a world rich with experiences and adventures. But, once you close the pages on your latest read, it may be time to step into a real-world, action-packed adventure with SCLSNJ’s Cultural Adventure Pass.
Discover the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s (SCLSNJ) Cultural Adventure Pass (an upgrade of the Library System’s current museum pass program) and visit 22 exciting destinations across the Tri-state area including gardens, zoos, museums, and more.
“SCLSNJ is excited to launch our new and improved Cultural Adventure Pass,” said Darryl Voorhees, manager of adult services, programming and collaborations. “This program reflects our expanding horizons in catering to lifelong learning experiences. SCLSNJ encourages you to connect with nature by visiting our New Jersey State Parks; explore the animal kingdom at the Elmwood Park Zoo; share artistic talents with children at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan; discover our country’s history at the Museum of the American Revolution and the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia; and more. We hope Library customers will love the new Cultural Adventure Pass as much as we do.”
